As a native of the Twin Cities, Jessica Park won First Prizes at the 2013 AGO/Quimby Regional Competition for Young Organists (Region VI), and the 2013 Twin Cities Chapter Competition. She performed recitals as a “Rising Star” at the 2014 AGO National Convention in Boston, and was the featured organist at the inaugural 2014 Twin Cities Early Music Festival. Jessica received her Bachelor of Music degree in Organ Performance and Master of Music degree in Historical Performance from the Oberlin Conservatory, where she studied organ with James David Christie and harpsichord with Webb Wiggins. She returned to the Twin Cities to attend the University of Minnesota for the Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Organ Performance and studied with Dean Billmeyer. Jessica is currently the Chapel Organist of the Chapel of St. Thomas Aquinas at the University of St. Thomas.

At St. Olaf, we are blessed to have a magnificent 67-rank pipe organ. This fall, it will be showcased in a series of recitals on Wednesday afternoons, immediately following the noon Mass. Come hear the organ thunder with might and whisper gently as talented organists showcase a variety of repertoire.

Wednesday Organ Recitals run from Sept 26 through Dec 5 (no recital Oct 31), and will be approx. 30-40 minutes long. Freewill donation.
