Adam Brakel organist

Sunday, August 25 2:30 PM

Hailed as “an absolute organ prodigy” by national public radio and “one of the most talented organists in the world” by the Chicago Tribune, concert organist Adam J. Brakel is a preeminent artist “with the technique and virtuosity that most concert pianists could only dream of.” (NPR)

Adam’s celebrated performances span the globe—from coast to coast in the United States to across Europe and Asia. Brakel has one of the largest and most diverse performing repertoires in the world. His expansive list includes the entire spectrum of styles featuring the complete organ works of Bach, Bruhns, Buxtehude, Couperin, Liszt, de Grigny, Franck, Mozart, Mendelssohn, and Duruflé.

In addition to his concert career, Adam was most recently appointed Director of Music for St. James Cathedral and the Diocese of Orlando, Florida.

Monsignor James T. Telthorst – St. Louis Cathedral Concerts Endowment Fund
$35,000 Matching Gift Challenge

In 1992, St. Louis Cathedral Concerts was established with the enthusiastic support of Msgr. James T. Telthorst, who was the Rector of the Cathedral Basilica at the time and who went on to serve for many years as a member of the Cathedral Concerts board. Msgr. Telthorst was also the recipient of the “Great Music Award” at our gala event in May of 2013 in appreciation of his ongoing commitment to and support of Cathedral Concerts.

Today, St. Louis Cathedral Concerts has secured perpetual support with the creation of an endowment fund named in Msgr. Telthorst’s honor. The Monsignor James T. Telthorst – Cathedral Concerts Endowment Fund was established through the generosity of several donors and will provide annual distributions that will help St. Louis Cathedral Concerts fulfill its mission of presenting affordable live concerts in the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis featuring world-class musicians and the finest repertoire of sacred and classical music.

A generous anonymous donor has pledged to match gifts up to $35,000, thereby doubling your giving power! Gifts to The Monsignor James T. Telthorst – Cathedral Concerts Endowment Fund should be made directly to the Roman Catholic Foundation.
