Randall Atcheson Solo Recital at Carnegie Hall
Wednesday November 1, 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Randall Atcheson is the epitome of a musical Renaissance man. His gift of communicating the beauty of music in various forms has led to a decidedly versatile career as a much-sought-after artist in the classics as well as in pop and the sacred repertoire. This versatility was evidenced early in life when he was recognized as a prodigy on both piano and organ. He entered Samford University at age 12 and later he was accepted at The Juilliard School where he became the only student in the history of Juilliard ever allowed to pursue and receive simultaneous degrees in piano and organ performance. He studied piano with Sascha Gorodnitzki and organ with Anthony Newman.
Atcheson was the winner of the first Juilliard Organ Competition and subsequently gave the premiere performance on the new pipe organ in Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center.
