Organist Gail Archer

Internationally renowned star concert organist Gail Archer celebrates the distinctive voice of organ music in The Muses Voice: A Celebration of International Women Composers – a five-concert series touring the churches and synagogues of New York City. Performing a colorful collection of organ music spanning 19th – 21st century female composers, Archer is slated to premiere two works: the New York premiere of The Everlasting Crown by Judith Bingham; and the world premiere of And the Greatest of These is Love by Alla Borzova. Hailed for championing contemporary organ music by female composers, Archer will also feature works by Nadia Boulanger, Jeanne Demessieux, Sofia Gubaidulina, Judith Bingham and Jennifer Higdon, to name a few. Several of these works are being recorded for Archer’s next album to be released in Spring 2013.
