Known for his dazzling and imaginative playing, Christopher Houlihan will make his debut at Overture Hall performing Liszt’s towering Fantasy and Fugue on “Ad nos, ad salutarem undam.” Mr. Houlihan will demonstrate his incredible musicianship and artistry in this tour de force. Mr. Houlihan will also perform a work that includes a narrated “tour” of the organ, with variations based on an American folk tune, and I will have the pleasure of narrating as the organ is explored. — Greg Zelek

Robert Edward Smith, An Introduction to the King of Instruments: Variations on an American Folk Tune
Franz Liszt, Fantasy and Fugue on “Ad nos, ad salutarem undam”

Organ phenom who has already been called one of the brightest stars in the new generation of American organists… rising star of the organ world who already has his own fan club.
— Janelle Gelfand, Cincinnati Enquirer

In Mr. Houlihan’s hands, the organ delivered plenty of firepower and juicy, well-blended chords, like a homogeneous string section in a fine symphony orchestra.
— Barbara Jepson, Wall Street Journal
