Robert Lord concert set for Oct. 30

A free public concert will commemorate the life of Robert Lord, University organist, 1962-99, who died in 2014.

The Oct. 30 event at 3 p.m. in Heinz Chapel, “The Sainte-Clotilde Tradition: A Living Legacy,” will include works by organist-composers whose works exemplify this 19th- and 20th-century French organ composition and improvisation method, on which Lord was an authority. Lord proteges Steven Anisko, Robert Blevins and Douglas Himes will be guest organists.

As part of the event, from 9 a.m.- noon on Oct. 29 Marie-Louise Langlais, widow of Jean Langlais, will teach a master class on her late husband’s music, French organ music and the Sainte-Clotilde tradition at Epiphany Catholic Church, 184 Washington Place, Uptown. Registration is $20 or $10 with a student ID.
