Master Class for Organists: A group of organists with a variety of backgrounds—from beginner to intermediate to advanced—were present for Tom Hazleton's workshop at the Love of Christ Presbyterian Church on Saturday, March 18, 2000. His recommendations for liturgical playing were concise and easy to implement—from playing more interesting hymn introductions to recommendations for specific music books which provide exciting hymn treatments.

Tom Hazleton In Concert

Tom Hazleton's exciting and colorful organ concert Sunday night, March 19, 2000, at The Love of Christ Korean Presbyterian Church in Bayside, Queens, NYC, was by all accounts a great success. The church was quite full and the response of the audience to master organist and recording star Tom Hazleton and the three artists who participated was just overwhelming.

Also amazing was the fact that two artists of completely professional abilities came from the church, plus a fine guest organist from neighboring Flushing. Ms. Jane Ahn, the organist of Love of Christ Presbyterian Church, gave a most exciting performance of the Chorale in A Minor, the organ masterpiece by Cesar Franck. Mr. Sung Chun Park, the tenor soloist in the church, performed the beautiful and very moving Agnus Dei of Bizet. And equally amazing were two organ improvisations by nineteen-year old John Hong, a scholarship student in organ at the Juilliard School of Music.

The results of all of this magnificent talent was an evening that was spiritual, uplifting and thoroughly delightful. As people heard effects from the organ  that they had possibly never heard before, we all were reminded why world-renowned Tom Hazleton has made more organ recordings than any other organist. The program was delightful, serious and moving. You must hear this man if you have never heard him before. Check out Tom's schedule under Artist Links . Don't miss him if you can help it.
