BROOKINGS – The Brookings Chamber Music Society presents its second concert of the year, featuring Minneapolis-based organist and choirmaster Scott Turkington, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the Oscar Larson Performing Arts Center.
Turkington currently serves as director of sacred music for the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. He is a graduate of the University of Minnesota, the Boston Conservatory and the Catholic University of America.
As an organ recitalist, he has played innumerable U.S. recitals, having made his New York debut at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and in Washington, D.C., at the Washington National Cathedral. He has performed for a national convention of the Organ Historical Society and is a featured performer on the acclaimed Organ Historical Society CD, “Organs of Baltimore.”
A proud moment in his career occurred in 1994 when his choir performed for Pope John Paul II at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.
Turkington will perform on the 51-rank pipe organ located in the Oscar Larson Performing Arts Center’s Founders Recital Hall. The concert is supported by John and Alla D. Ruffolo.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for students and are available at the door.
