Abraham Wallace, Organ Concert
Abraham Wallace is this year’s Organ Scholar and the recipient of the 2023-24 Gerre Hancock Internship through the Association of Anglican Musicians. Given as part of the In Excelsis Concert Series, his concert program is loosely designed after the Holy Communion service from The Book of Common Prayer (1928), using selected prayers as inspiration for each piece of music. Opening with Gerre Hancock’s Meditation on Union Seminary and concluding with a beloved movement from Gustav Holst’s The Planets, this program is sure to delight and inspire.
