||2012-2013 Sherry and Jim Smith Organ Recital Series
Opening Event: An Evening with Dr. Joyce Jones
Dr. Joyce Jones, the recently retired Joyce Oliver Bowden Professor of Music and Organist-in-Residence at Baylor University, will give a recital of major organ works, including her own compositions and works by Bach and Dupré.
In her 43 years at Baylor, Jones devoted her life to making friends for the organ and sharing her Christian testimony through music. The list of venues in which she has performed includes the Mormon Tabernacle, the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Meyerson Symphony Center. She was the first woman to perform on the organ at the Crystal Cathedral, the first organist to play for the Grand Teton Music Festival, and the only woman organist chosen to play with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra at the inauguration of the Ruffatti organ in Davies Symphony Hall.
An Evening with Dr. Joyce Jones is free and open to the public.
