For the second concert of its 2019-2020 season, St. Norbert Abbey’s Canon John O. Bruce Memorial Organ Concert Series presents organist Ken Cowan. The concert is open to the public and is a free will offering.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), this program has been canceled. We hope to reschedule this event in the near future.

About the Organist

LOS ANGELES, CA “Cowan’s performance was stunning. [His] playing displayed
understanding of the composer’s intentions and allowed one to hear the beauty of the various
families of color on this glorious instrument. There was passion and fire in this virtuosic
performance [Max Reger’s fantasia on Wie schön leucht’ uns der Morgenstern]. Cowan’s
careful and wonderfully sensitive musical interpretation of all the variations, and in particular,
the powerful texts of the concluding verses, moved this writer to tears.”

– (The 2004 National Convention of the AGO in Los Angeles) The American Organist

DALLAS, TX “KEN COWAN SHOWS OFF THE ORCHESTRAL SOUNDS OF NEW
ORGAN AT HIGHLAND PARK UNITED METHODIST CHURCH” “Cowan was at his
most dazzling in transcriptions of Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream Overture and
Liszt’s Mephisto Waltz No. 1. Sounds shifted, swelled and diminished in apparently limitless
variety, all while Cowan dispatched dizzying arrays of notes.”

-Scott Cantrell, The Dallas Morning News
