One of THE BEST organists in the world, James David Christie, renowned Boston Symphony Orchestra organist since 1978, appears in recital at the Pinnacle Concert Series. Christie has the distinction of being the first American to win the prestigious International Organ Competition in Bruges (Belgium), and the first competitor to win both First Prize and Prize of the Audience. Superbly impressive, yet wittily personal.
