Trent Johnson's 'Concertante for Organ and String Quartet' will be premiered July 4, 8 PM, Morristown, NJ

The composer, organist and conductor Trent Johnson sends exciting news of the July 4 premiere of his Concertante for Organ and String Quartet, commissioned by the Convention for Regions I and II of the American Guild of Organists:

Dear Mr. Zick,
I wanted to let you know about an upcoming premiere of a new work of mine. The American Guild of Organists is having their Convention for Regions I and II (NJ, NY, Boston and parts north) in Morristown, NJ from July 3-6. As part of the recitals, concerts, workshops, and exhibits there will be a concert for organ and instruments.

I feel very honored that the convention commissioned me to write a new work for organ and string quartet. The work, Concertante for Organ and String Quartet, is in 3 movements and is about 12 minutes in length. The performers will be the Shanghai String Quartet, and organist Dr. Marilyn Keiser from Indiana University. The concert will take place on July 4 from 8-9:30pm at Morristown United Methodist Church, 50 South Park Place, Morristown, NJ 07960. Tickets are $15 at the door. Thank you.
Trent Johnson
