Piano by Nature Virtual Concert: Organist Andrew Sheranian
March 12 @ 7:00 pm
Saturday, March 12th will be a time to engage and be lifted up, soaking in a magnificence often only reserved for sacred settings and concert halls. On that day Piano by Nature will bring you music that has filled the Notre Dame Cathedral and soothed the human spirit, encompassing a multitude of nationalities, traditions, and styles that have been handed down through the ages. As Organist and Master of Choristers at the All Saints Church in Boston, Andrew Sheranian continually references the past to build on the future, and he explores music spanning the millennia directly alongside works from our own time. For his PBN virtual concert, he will share stories and music that bring to life these incredible traditions, enlightening us to a world in which he is a distinguished torchbearer and champion.
We in the North Country have had opportunities to experience Andrew’s stunning expertise through his earlier live performances at both the Essex Community Church and St. John’s Episcopal Church, and we now hope to introduce this incredible musician and scholar to a wider audience. For his Piano by Nature event, Andrew will be performing on two very special organs from different eras, giving us a glimpse into their unique sound, color, and structural properties. We are particularly grateful to Zoom for allowing us the opportunity to hear both of the organs side-by-side in their home at the All Saints Church in Boston. We hope you will take a moment to learn more about the organs here and here.
His PBN concert repertoire encompasses composers from four countries and an over three-century span of music. It will also highlight a glorious lesser-known work by Florence Price–the first female African-American to earn national recognition for her compositions. Please visit Andrew’s youtube channel to listen to some of his amazing past performances.
