John Varona is Southeast Minnesota’s organ virtuoso.  John is the Principal organist at Christ United Methodist Church in Rochester MN. A student of America’s premier organist Catherine Crozier, John believes in the power of music to communicate directly with the audience. John has performed at major concert venues throughout Europe, Canada, and the United States, including at First Congregational Church in Los Angeles- Home of the world’s largest church pipe organ. His extensive repertoire spans six centuries and includes the complete works of Messiaen, Langlais, Widor, Vierne, Reubke and Bach. John also enjoys theater organ music and sometimes provides live accompaniment for silent film movies.

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 September 18 through December 4, and will be approx. 30-40 minutes long.
