Around the World in 80 Minutes is a fast-moving concert that features unique global organ repertoire by native composers and is as exciting as it sounds. It takes audiences on a great journey that transcends the boundaries of
countries, religions, nationalities, time periods and styles. Bringing people together through music, visuals and the grandeur of the organ, it is a story celebrating the fascinating diversity of the music of the world.
Bach and Sons, of course, features his music and that of his sons, however, kind of an interesting twist, (it is narrated by the 4 women important in Bach’s life). It includes historically informed performances of Bach's greatest organ music. Bach and Sons has been performed in many venues in the US and has also been
performed in Austria and Germany
with narration in German.
From Sea to Shining Sea is the
perilous story of the early expansion of the organ in the colonies into the US
as told by an actual Mayflower descendant.
It is focused on unique American music and
at the same time is more patriotic in nature.
It has content unique to our concert since it originated with Dr. Jordan's thesis research.
Jeannine is a champion of the organ and its music. She has traveled throughout the US and the world promoting and sharing organ music through her innovative concerts. As a professional organist she enjoys a varied career. Besides concertizing and recording, Jeannine has held university teaching positions and has served in a variety of positions in church music ministry. She is also the President and founder of Pro-Motion Music — a company celebrating the world of the organ. Dr. Jordan was awarded the Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Organ Performance and Music History from the University of Oregon where early American organists was the subject of her dissertation.
This study led to further research and collaboration with media artist,
David Jordan to create From Sea to Shining Sea.
David Jordan, a skilled pianist with a Master of Music degree in composition from Ball State University, is also a media artist. Whether creating the visual portions of the Pro-Motion Music concert multi-media events, re-imagining photographs, his work inspires and mesmerizes its viewers.
His work guides you through the programs with images, videos and live cameras following Jeannine and her incredible expertise on the organ. He helps the audience experience the story in the moment; hearing the music, seeing the images, and simultaneously feeling the pulse of the space in which the image existed. His multi-media approach is simply an extension of what he likes to experience every day of his life; an awareness of everything going on.
