Assistant Professor of Music at the Eastman School of Music since fall semester 2013, Nathan J. Laube has quickly earned a place among the organ world’s elite performers. His brilliant playing and gracious demeanor have thrilled audiences and presenters across the United States and in Europe, and his creative programming of repertoire spanning five centuries, including his own virtuoso transcriptions of orchestral works, have earned high praise from critics and peers alike.

Mr. Laube’s recording of the Stephen Paulus Grand Concerto for Organ and Orchestra with the Nashville Symphony was awarded a GRAMMY® for Best Classical Compendium at the 58th annual awards ceremony in February 2016. The celebrated release on the Naxos label features Mr. Laube as concerto soloist with Maestro Giancarlo Guerrero conducting the Nashville Symphony in a compendium of works by Stephen Paulus.

Mr. Laube will be performing a commissioned work celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Organ Artists Series. He will showcase his amazing talent on the four-manual 120-rank Goulding & Wood organ at East Liberty Presbyterian Church.

This concert was broadcast live on Facebook. Below are archived links to the recording:
