Joonho Park, Korean organ virtuoso, will perform a wide-ranging program of great pieces on the 1893 Hutchings-Fisk pipe organ on Saturday, February 11 at 7:30pm in the historic (1806) Gloucester Meetinghouse. He will display the many tone colors and sonorities of this fine instrument in works of Gigout, Bach, Fauré, Mendelssohn, Dupré, Mozart, Liszt and Vierne. His previous Gloucester performance was in 2017, performing a stunning all-Bach program. Cape Ann welcomes him back to the Gloucester Meetinghouse as part of an international concert tour.

Beginning his musical studies in Seoul, South Korea, Joonho Park was graduated from the Korea National University of Arts in 2007. He went on to study with Jon Laukivik at the University of Performing Arts and Music in Stuttgart, Germany and with and Michel Bouvard at the Conservatory in Toulouse, France. He was recently appointed as professor of organ at the University of Texas at Austin and currently serves as an adjunct professor at the Hanyang University and at the Korea National University of Arts in Seoul, South Korea.

He has also performed in many organ festivals such as: Galway Cathedral, Pipeworks in Dublin; Kilkenny Art Festival; Festival Toulouse Les Orgues; Summer Organ Festival in Bordeaux; and Quincena Musical de San Sebastián.

In his home city of Seoul, he is regularly invited to play at the Lotte Concert Hall.
