Dr. Larry Taylor, associate professor of music at Bridgewater College, will present “My True Love” at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 10, in Cole Hall.
The recital features works by Camille Saint-Saëns, Louis Vierne, Johann Sebastian Bach and Naji Hakim.
Taylor will also provide organ accompaniment to Number, Please?, a silent film starring Harold Lloyd, Mildred Davis and Roy Brooks and directed by Hal Roach and Fred C. Newmeyer.
Taylor teaches piano, organ, music theory and history and serves as department chair. He holds a doctor of musical arts degree in organ from the University of Cincinnati (where he won the Strader Organ Competition), master of music degrees from Emory University and Notre Dame, and a bachelor of music degree from Seton Hill University in Greensburg, Pa. As a composer, Taylor has collaborated frequently with poet Tom Noe to produce anthems, cantatas, the song cycle Marie Curie and the opera Eros and Psyche. Eros and Psyche had its premiere performance at Bridgewater College in 2011. In addition to solo recitals on piano and organ, Taylor has arranged and performed accompaniments on organ for classic silent films.
The concert is free and open to the public.
