Plutz to perform 'Musique Héroïque,' Nov. 18
Posted November 8, 2006; 03:52 p.m.
University Organist Eric Plutz will perform "Musique Héroïque," a concert of works that contain "héroïque" or "eroica" in their titles, at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 18, in the University Chapel.
Heroic works by Dupré, Stanford, Franck, Langlais and Dubois will be presented, and a six-piece brass ensemble will join with the organ for several selections. Plutz's CD recording "Musique Héroïque," which contains many of the works to be performed, will be available for purchase following the concert.
Plutz came to Princeton in 2005 from the Church of the Epiphany in Washington, D.C., where he had been organist and director of music since 1995. He earned his bachelor's degree from Westminster Choir College of Rider University and his master's degree from the Eastman School of Music.
The concert is sponsored by the Office of Religious Life and funded, in part, by Frank Totten, a member of the chapel congregation, in celebration of his 75th birthday. Admission is free for students, $15 for the general public and $10 for senior citizens.
