In honor of Franck’s 200th birthday, I open the season with his masterpiece, Grand Pièce Symphonique, which is just as grand as its title would suggest. Join me on this incredible journey as we get to know this magnificent work from one of the greatest organ composers of all time. The program will also include the U.S. premiere of a new, personally-dedicated work by German composer Paul Fey, as well as many selections from my first organ CD recorded in Overture Hall that will be released in the Fall of 2022. — Greg Zelek



Paul Fey, Toccata
Claude Debussy, Clair de Lune
J.S. Bach, Gigue Fugue and “Little” Fugue in G minor

mso music director john demain

Zelek was physically animated throughout the performance. His hands flew across three levels of keyboards while his feet worked the pedalboard like somebody playing Dance Dance Revolution in an arcade.

— Howard Hardee, Wisconsin State Journal

Greg is a genius on the organ! I could listen to him all day. I have invited several family members to attend concerts with me and we are all awed by Greg’s abilities! He is amazing!
