Kansas organist to open new music series at GC

GOSHEN — Kansas organist Carrie Groenewold will open Goshen College’s inaugural Rieth Chamber Series with an organ recital in Rieth Recital Hall Sunday. The concert begins at 4 p.m. and will be performed on Goshen’s Taylor and Boody pipe organ.

Installed and dedicated in 2005, the organ is designed and based on 18th-century North German organ building principles and features more than 1,600 pipes. Groenewold will present a concert of works by Bach, Sweelinck, Mendelssohn, Reincken and Francisco Correa de Arauxo.

An informal reception in the Music Center lobby will follow the concert, and a tour of the organ will be available for any interested audience members.

Groenewold is completing a doctor of musical arts degree in church music (organ emphasis) at the University of Kansas, where she studies with Michael Bauer. She received a master of sacred music degree from the University of Notre Dame in 2008, studying organ with Craig Cramer. Groenewold has served a number of churches as organist and choir director, including St. John’s Episcopal Church in Elkhart, and is currently the organist at First Presbyterian Church in Lawrence, Kan.
