Dr. Bryan G. Rowe is a Baltimore native. He began his piano study at age five and composed his first composition at age six. Bryan received a scholarship to study organ at The Peabody Conservatory Preparatory School while in secondary school. He graduated from Lebanon Valley College of Pennsylvania where he studied with the late Dr. Pierce A. Getz for whom the CD is dedicated, Johns Hopkins University, and most recently from The Graduate Theological Foundation with a doctorate in Sacred Music. His experience in that program led him to studies abroad at Salisbury Cathedral in England as well as Oxford University.
Bryan has performed nationally and internationally as a pianist, organist, and choral conductor. His international performances include a tour of Europe which included a solo organ recital at St. Paul’s Cathedral, London (featured on his soon to be released CD, Bryan G. Rowe LIVE!) and his national performances have included five recitals at Washington’s National Cathedral, Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, California, and numerous concerts in Memphis, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
Bryan is a prolific recording artist. This retrospective compilation of live organ performances features monumental and virtuoso works of Bach, Durufle, Franck, and Karg-Elert as well as several of the Rowe’s original compositions.
