Internationally Renowned Organist Chelsea Chen
Chelsea Chen returns to play the Kotzschmar organ.
Chelsea Chen has electrified audiences throughout the United States, Europe, Australia, and Asia in venues such as Singapore’s Esplanade, Hong Kong’s Cultural Centre, Kishinev’s National Organ Hall, and Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center. As a composer she is broadening the classical organ repertoire with her own works based on Asian folksongs.
Known for her diverse repertoire, her last concert in Portland featured the well-known “Toccata and Fugue in D Minor” by J.S. Bach, a selection of her own compositions, the “Super Mario Fantasia” based on music from the popular video game, as well as jazz standards from Duke Ellington, Ben Bernie, and George Gershwin.
Please join us for a pre-concert talk at 6:30 PM in the Rehearsal Hall of Merrill Auditorium.
