The Choir of St. John's College, Cambridge, England

Presented by Friends of Cathedral Music and the British Consulate-General Atlanta

The return to Atlanta of one of the most celebrated choirs of men & boys in the world will move and delight listeners! At home in the University of Cambridge, the choir sings six Evensongs and a fully Choral Eucharist each week during university term, giving them a facility of musicianship and breadth of repertoire that is truly astounding. Over the past half-century, the Choir has toured independently throughout the world – on many occasions as goodwill ambassadors of the British government – and released more than one hundred critically acclaimed recordings on international labels including EMI, Decca, Chandos, Hyperion and Naxos. This will be an extraordinary evening featuring some of the most beautiful boy treble singing one will ever have the privilege of hearing anywhere!

Atlanta Summer Organ Festival Recital
Thomas Murray

Presented by Delbert Lowell Jacks in memory of Thomas Ruben Jones, and by Friends of Cathedral Music

Thomas Murray was named Emeritus Professor of Organ at Yale University upon his retirement in 2019 after thirty-eight years of distinguished service on the Yale faculty. In a performing and recording career spanning more than a half-century he has become renowned especially for his interpretations of Romantic repertoire and music transcribed for the organ from orchestral and other media.

His performances have taken Murray to England, to eight continental European cities, to Australia, Japan and Argentina, as well as across the North American continent. The New York City chapter of the American Guild of Organists named him International Artist of the Year for 1986; as a recipient of this award he followed such luminaries as Marie-Claire Alain, Jean Guillou and Dame Gillian Weir. 

He holds honorary Fellowship diplomas from both the Royal College of Organists in England (2003) and the Royal Canadian College of Organists (2016). At Yale he has coached many of today’s leading young concert performers; in 2005 he was awarded the Gustave Stoeckel Award for excellence in teaching from the Yale University School of Music.
