Malmgren ‘Rising Star Recital’ Nov. 6 to feature Justin Murphy-Mancini
The talent of organist Justin Murphy-Mancini will be featured during this year’s Malmgren Concert Series “Rising Star Recital” at Syracuse University on Sunday, Nov. 6.
The recital will begin at 4 p.m. in Hendricks Chapel and is free and open to the public. Parking will be available in the Irving Garage.
Murphy-Mancini is an undergraduate student in organ performance and composition at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Oberlin, Ohio. He is an organ student of Jack Mitchener and has participated in masterclasses with Olivier Latry, Philippe Lefèbvre and John Ferguson. He serves as assistant organist and choral scholar at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Lakewood, Ohio. Under the supervision of the composer, he performed David Lang’s “The Little Match Girl Passion” with the Oberlin Contemporary Ensemble at the Cleveland Museum of Art. A versatile musician, Murphy-Mancini also plays the piano, harpsichord and double bass.
The concert is part of the Malmgren Concert Series at Hendricks Chapel. The series was made possible by a generous gift to Hendricks Chapel from alumna Esther Malmgren ’42 in 1991. The free concerts, held throughout the year, feature a wide variety of music.
Upcoming concerts in the Malmgren Concert Series include SU Faculty Perform Chamber Music with Organ (Jan. 29, 2012) and Chamber Choir Musica Intima (Feb. 26, 2012).
