Special Recital Scheduled

We are pleased to announce the addition of another program.

The Clapper / Frysinger Fund, recently established with bequests to the Chapter by Donald Clapper and

Patricia Frysinger, has been earmarked to avail funding for recitals to be presented by young rising star organists.

We will welcome Nicholas Capozzoli, winner of the Region III AGO/Quimby Competition, to our Chapter for

a special recital on Saturday, May 31 at 7:00pm at Trinity Lutheran Church, 2000 Chestnut Street, Camp Hill.

A native of Pittsburgh, Nicholas Capozzoli is a junior at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music,

where he is a student of James David Christie and is majoring in organ performance.

He began his musical studies at the age of nine and received initial training from Liz Stumpf and Kathy English.

He soon took an interest in the organ, and through the Pittsburgh Organ Academy of the Pittsburgh AGO Chapter,

he studied with Richard Pinkerton. He is the first-place winner of several competitions, including the Pittsburgh

Concert Society Audition for Young Organists, the Carol Teti Memorial Organ Competition, the Blackwood Theater Organ

Society Scholarship Competition, and the Music for Mount Lebanon Scholarship Competition. In August 2013,

Nicholas played a recital at the National Association of Pastoral Musicians Convention in Washington, D.C.

He has participated in masterclasses conducted by Jane Parker-Smith, Hector Olivera, and Jack Mitchener,

and has performed in several venues, including St. Paul Cathedral and Heinz Chapel (Pittsburgh, PA),

Bower Chapel (Naples, FL), and St. Peter Cathedral (Erie, PA).
