Organ Concert at St. Dunstan’s Church
David Hatt, Interim Organist at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, will bring German masters, a French Romantic, and original compositions to his performance on the Dobson Tracker organ at St. Dunstan’s Episcopal Church in Carmel Valley.
David’s program will move from Buxtehude, Bach, and Max Reger to Jehan Alain and two of his own compositions that feature variations on a familiar theme with jazz and avant garde influences, and treatments on an old hymn tune from neo-romanticism to a toccata. A composer, organist and pianist, Hatt’s keyboard and chamber works have been performed at conventions of the Society of Composers, Inc. and by many organists nationwide.
“David Hatt is a talented composer and organist whose performance will deliver variety, originality and excitement,” says St. Dunstan’s Musical Director, Steven Denmark.
Hatt is the Interim Organist at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, and has been Assistant Cathedral Organist at St. Mary’s Cathedral since 1998. A working organist for fifty years, Hatt has appeared three times with the San Francisco Symphony, and has recorded for the Grenadilla, Advance and Rastascan labels. His live performances of the music of Louis Vierne at St. Mary’s Cathedral are available on CD.
A native of Arizona, David earned an MA in Keyboard Performance from UC, Riverside. He is a Past Dean of the San Jose Chapter of the American Guild of Organists and founder of the Bay Area Max Reger Festival. He performs annually on the large Dobson organ at the Cathedral of our Lady of Angels in Los Angeles.
The concert is preceded by a wine and cheese reception at 5 pm; the concert is 6-7 pm. Tickets are available at the door for $20; students and those under 18 attend free.
