Paul Jacobs, Grammy-winning artist and established member of the Juilliard School Organ Department made history performing Bach’s organ works in their entirety — over an 18-hour period. The former mentor and teacher of MSO’s Principal Organist Greg Zelek will bring MSO’s magnificent Overture Concert Organ to life when he makes his Madison debut with an all-Bach program.

About Paul Jacobs
The only organist ever to have won a Grammy Award (for Messiaen’s “Livre du Saint-Sacrement”), Paul Jacobs transfixes audiences, colleagues and critics alike with imaginative interpretations and charismatic stage presence. Hailed as “one of the major musicians of our time” by the New Yorker’s Alex Ross, Mr. Jacobs has been an important influence in the revival of symphonic works featuring the organ, drawing from his deep knowledge of western music to enlighten listeners, and is a true innovator in the advocacy of organ repertoire, performing and encouraging the composition of new works that feature the organ.
