Anna Myeong is the organist at West Middleton Lutheran Church. A native of South Korea, she received a BM degree in organ performance from Yonsei University in Seoul. In the US, she studied organ with James Higdon at the University of Kansas (KU) and became the Lecturer of Organ after she received her MM and DMA degrees. During her graduate studies at KU, Anna attended an organ interpretation course in Romainmôtier, Switzerland and had the opportunity to study with Marie-Claire Alain, Luigi Tagliavini, and Guy Bovet.

As a concert organist, Anna has performed in North America and Europe, including programs at Washington National Cathedral in DC, Saint Thomas Church and Saint John the Divine in New York City, Princeton University Chapel, Harvard University Adolphus Busch Hall, Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, Trinity Church at Copley Square in Boston, Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart in New Jersey, Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral in Kansas City, and Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. In 2010, she had an organ recital tour in England that included Westminster Abbey in London, Coventry Cathedral, and St. Paul’s Church in Birmingham. She was a featured artist at the American Guild of Organists (AGO) regional conventions and American Liszt Society National Festival. Anna’s performance has been broadcast on American Public Media’s Pipedreams.
