Organist Daniel Aune will perform the works of Sweelinck, Muffat, Bach, Alain and Bolcom during the next Malmgren Concert at Hendricks Chapel on Sunday, Nov. 12.
The “Rising Star” concert will begin at 4 p.m. in the chapel and is free and open to the public. Free parking will be available in the Irving Garage.
Aune started studying piano with his grandfather at age 7 and began lessons at age 15 with Peter Nygaard, instructor of organ music at Concordia College in Minnesota. He received a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in organ performance from the Eastman School of Music. He is currently working on a doctor of musical arts degree in the studio of David Higgs. Aune also serves as the organist and director of music at Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church in Webster, N.Y., and organist for St. Mary’s Church in Rochester.
The concert is part of the Malmgren Concert Series at Hendricks Chapel. The series was made possible by a gift to Hendricks Chapel from alumna Esther Drake Malmgren ’42 in 1991. The free Sunday afternoon concerts, held throughout the year, feature a variety of music.
