The Tiffany Series presents diverse musical programs and notable speakers on issues of importance to the community. The series is named for the unparalleled collection of 11 original Tiffany stained glass windows in Brown Memorial’s stunning sanctuary, with its high-vaulted ceiling and superb acoustics.
The Tiffany Series is honored to present a concert by the renowned organist Eric Plutz on Sunday, April 23 at 3 p.m. Mr. Plutz, the Princeton University organist and teacher, has performed at distinguished locations across the United States and Europe. He has also been a featured artist at both regional and national conventions of the American Guild of Organists. His playing on one of his albums was described by a reviewer as “sensitive, emotional, stunningly accurate, and spectacularly musical…truly a world-class performance by a world-class musician.” As an accompanist, Mr. Plutz has worked with the National Symphony Orchestra, the Choral Arts Society of Washington, and the Cathedral Choral Society, as well as the Princeton Chapel Choir.
Tickets are $20; students get free admission. For more information, please call 410-523-1542.
Typically, each Tiffany Series season includes a choral concert featuring Brown’s Chancel Choir and soloists, and an organ recital showcasing the church’s renowned 1931 Skinner organ. Guest organists have included Frederick Swann. Tiffany series musical programs have also included brass concerts, handbell festivals, classical musicians and singers, bluegrass, folk and steel drum musicians and gospel choirs.
