Saturday evening April 14 at 7:30 – Concert

New San Diego Civic Organist Raúl Prieto Ramírez presents his first evening concert since his arrival in San Diego. Join him for a deeper musical journey into the pieces that Raúl has performed in concerts worldwide, as he puts the world’s largest outdoor pipe organ through its paces. Both classical and popular pieces will be included.

 

With words such as “sizzling” and “transcendent” used to describe his performances, Raúl Prieto Ramírez is the first Spanish organist in recent times to establish himself among the elite of the international pipe organ scene – and he is well known for being one of the few concert organists who performs from memory. His powerful personality, passionate expressiveness, and outstanding technique make him shine in a wide range of repertoire and styles.
