Calvin Taylor Concert at Glenwood Church

Calvin Taylor, pianist and recording artist, former Voice of Prophecy musician, and currently appearing each week on 3ABN, will appear in a live concert of sacred music on Saturday, August 9 at the Glenwood Seventh-day Adventist Church, 51089 Glenwood Road, Dowagiac, at 7:30 p.m.

 

Dr. Taylor has toured throughout the world, performing in North and South America, Europe, Ukraine, and the Far East. Holding degrees in music from Oberlin Conservatory, The University of Michigan, and the University of Kentucky, Calvin has authored several music books, including Spirituals for Piano, The Patriotic Piano, Spiritual Suite for Organ, Spirituals for Worship, Sacred Classics, and Five Spirituals for Organ. With over ten solo recordings to his credit, Calvin Taylor records for Master Disc Records. Movements from his Sunrise Symphony have been performed by several orchestras including Nashville, Shreveport, South Arkansas, Salt Lake City, and Detroit Symphony Orchestras.

 

Awarded a full scholarship to Oberlin College Conservatory of Music, Calvin Taylor?s ability to improvise led him to become the first student in the school?s over one hundred seventy-five year history to improvise a graduate concert encore.

 

With an unusually-large hand span of over 1 1/2 octaves, Dr. Taylor presents sounds and colors at the keyboard which would normally require four hands. Playing piano by ear at five years of age, he began formal lessons on his seventh birthday. He also studied other instruments, and was serving as a church organist at the age of fourteen. While in high school, Calvin was a member of both the Los Angeles Junior Philharmonic and the Southwest Youth Symphony.

There is no charge for admission. A freewill offering will be received.

The public is enthusiastically invited.
