Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue, New York

Grand Organ Series

​Opening the Grand Organ Series 2020-21, American Fulbright Scholar, Joy-Leilani Garbutt presents the music of Jeanne Demessieux and les compositrices françaises. A culmination of her own research in France, Garbutt plays a program of rediscovered French organ music composed by Elsa Barraine, Nadia Boulanger, Marie-Vera Maixandeau and other women of the early 20th century.


"This was another highlight, as Garbutt played through the difficult and diverse piece with clarity and poise."

R. Derek Wetzel

The Harvard Crimson

"Her playing transcended the academic aspect of the compositions and touched the soul of each of the composers. How marvelous it is when scholarship and art join together and are manifested in an outpouring of pure artistic expression."

Michael Varlas
