Having first encountered the pipe organ at the Interlochen Summer Arts Camp (Michigan) at the age of sixteen, Weston Jennings later graduated from the Interlochen Arts Academy. At the Eastman School of Music, he earned his Bachelor of Music Degree and the prestigious Performer’s Certificate.
Weston recently completed two years in England as the Organ Scholar of Canterbury Cathedral and Chelmsford Cathedral. During this time, he was also appointed the first Organ Scholar to the Royal Festival Hall, London.
He currently studies with Thomas Murray at the Yale School of Music and the Yale Institute of Sacred Music. Former organ teachers include Michel Bouvard, Hans Davidsson, David Higgs and Thomas Bara. Following his recital debut at The Kennedy Center (Washington, DC) in 2009, he has performed across the United States and Europe, including Westminster Abbey (London), Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue (New York), The Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels (Los Angeles), The Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception (Denver) and the Berliner Dom (Germany).
As a teacher, Weston has served on the faculty of the Interlochen Summer Arts Camp and the Department of Music at The King’s School, Canterbury. He has taught and performed at Pipe Organ Encounters across America. Forthcoming recital engagements include St. Patrick’s Cathedral NYC, the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in DC, and Moscow’s Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.
The Central Arkansas Chapter meets once a month, September through May, for dinner, business meeting and a concert. These meetings are a time for fellowship, to visit with old friends, to make new friends, and to enjoy the performances of world-class artists. Our recitals are free, open to the public, and made possible by the support of our members, chapter friends, and program sponsors.
Now is the time to join, or renew your membership of, the Central Arkansas Chapter of the American Guild of Organists. If you are an organist, church musician, or love the organ and its music, support our mission by joining us today. Memberships run from July 1 to June 30.
