Greg Zelek, Principal Organist and Elaine and Nicholas Mischler Curator of the Overture Concert Organ shares a performance and stories from his home.


Greg Zelek is the Madison Symphony Orchestra’s Principal Organist and the Elaine and Nicholas Mischler Curator of the Overture Concert Organ. He shared a short performance Bach’s “Gigue” Fugue from home this summer played on an instrument designed for practice, built by Bruce Case. Greg describes how the this organ is perfect for “note learning” and “touch” when preparing for a performance. Our conversation with Greg spans a wide range of topics — from MSO’s Mighty Klais organ — to his passion for music and being here in Madison sharing this instrument and his gifts. This is a perfect tune up you can experience before his streamed performance that premieres this week — Tuesday, October 13, at 7:30 p.m.
