cacago moyerThe Central Arkansas Chapter of the American Guild of Organists welcomes Jonathan William Moyer for a recital tonight.  It starts at 8pm at Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church and is free.

Jonathan William Moyer maintains a dynamic career as an organist, pianist, singer, and conductor. He has performed throughout the United States, Europe, and Japan, including such venues as Washington National Cathedral, the Musashino Civic Cultural Hall in Tokyo, and at the Dvôrák Spring Festival in Prague and Vienna. He is a member of the critically acclaimed early music vocal ensemble Quire Cleveland.

At the Church of the Covenant in Cleveland, Moyer oversees a music program consisting of a professional and amateur choir, children’s youth and handbell choirs, one of Cleveland’s largest pipe organs (E.M. Skinner/Aeolian Skinner/Holtkamp), the Newberry baroque organ (Richards Fowkes), and a 47-bell Dutch carillon.

In 2008, Moyer performed the complete organ works of Olivier Messiaen in four recitals at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen in Baltimore, celebrating the centenary of the composer’s birth and the renovation of the cathedral’s organ. Also that year, he received second prize in the Sixth International Musashino Organ Competition in Tokyo, Japan. In 2005, he was one of four finalists in the St. Albans International Organ Competition. He has served on the executive committee of the Cleveland Chapter of the American Guild of Organists.
