Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association Presents  Organist Carol Williams: "The Outer Limits"

(OCEAN GROVE, NJ) -- Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association’s always-popular free organ concert series continues with Carol Williams on Wednesday, August 10 at 7:30pm at the Great Auditorium, located at Pilgrim and Ocean Pathways in Ocean Grove. Known as “the world’s sweetheart organist,"  Carol William will perform works by classic and contemporary composers in a program entitled “The Outer Limits.”

The program will include works by classic and contemporary composers, including Vivaldi, Nicolaus Bruhns, Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Max Reger, Joel Raney, Bart Howard, and Dave Brubeck.

British born, Williams was raised in a musical Welsh family and could read music before she could read English. Her formal training started with private lessons at age five and she was already performing organ recitals at eight. She spent five years at the Royal Academy of Music as a student of David Sanger for both organ and piano and earned the prestigious Recital Diploma and a roster of major prizes. She was still in her teens when she became a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists and of Trinity College London. She was also an Associate of the Royal College of Music and continued her studies with Daniel Roth, Organist at the Church of St. Sulpice in Paris.

After moving to the U.S., she studied and earned degrees at Yale and the Manhattan School of Music. Williams’ work as a performing artist has taken her around the country and around the world, often collaborating with leading orchestras, as well as a wide assortment of classical, jazz, blues, pop and rock bands. She has recorded numerous CDs and can be heard in many cinematic DVDs. In performance, her elegance and charismatic humor are received with “rock star” enthusiasm. Williams is also a composer, the director of The Virginia International Organ Festival, and is formally affiliated with the Yale University Chapel and churches in New York, California, and Virginia. 

The Great Auditorium is located at Pilgrim and Ocean Pathways in Ocean Grove, New Jersey. All facilities are handicapped accessible.  For more information visit www.oceangrove.org/organ
