Spivey Hall welcomes back one of their own this Saturday. But this is not a homecoming decades in the making.

A recent Curtis Institute of Music graduate, Bryan Anderson spent his formative years singing in the Spivey¬†Hall Children’s Choir. Tomorrow’s recital, however, will not showcase Anderson’s vocal talents. He will instead sit at the hall’s grand organ and perform works of William Bolcom, Maurice Durufl√©, Antonio Vivaldi and others.

The young organist earned recognition at the American Guild of Organists’ 2012 National Convention. Anderson is now senior organ scholar at Wells Cathedral in Somerset, England.
