Renowed Organist Benjamin Sheen Performing in Millburn


MILLBURN, NJ - Hailed as a “brilliant organist” by the New York Times, Benjamin Sheen, prize-winning and widely traveled British-born organist, will play the winter recital of this 47th season of Beckerath Organ Recitals at St. Stephen’s Church in Millburn. 

The program will feature some of the most inspirational organ works written through the centuries.  One of Bach’s great masterpieces opens the program (the Toccata, Adagio & Fugue ), and two romantic fugues by Schumann written on the name of B.A.C.H. close the program.   Between these come S. S. Wesley’s sublime Larghetto in f#, Mozart’s thrilling Fantasia in f, and a soft, contrasting chorale prelude by Brahms.  Then just before the Schumann, something a little different:  Miroir, a minimalist work by contemporary Dutch composer Ad Wammes offers a musical depiction of light reflecting and refracting off a glass mirror.

Benjamin Sheen’s musical education began early, and at 13 he became the youngest person to give a full recital at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London.  He has since earned a BA from Oxford with 1st class honors and a Master of Music from the Juilliard School in NYC, and is also a prize-winning Fellow of the Royal College of Organists.  At. St. Thomas Church Fifth Avenue Mr. Sheen currently holds the position of Associate Organist, working with newly appointed Music Director Daniel Hyde.

As a concert organist, Mr. Sheen has performed throughout Europe, the USA, Canada, and Australia.   He has also performed with notable orchestras, including the Royal Philharrmonic and the City of London Sinfonia, as well as live on BBC radio and television and NYC’s classical radio station WQXR.  
The concert is scheduled for Sunday afternoon, February 26, at 4 p.m.   Admission to the recital is by donation at the door ($10 suggested).   Students and children accompanied by an adult are cordially invited to come as guests.  A reception for the artist follows the recital.  For further information the church can be reached at (973) 376-0688, or consult  St. Stephen’s Church is located at 119 Main Street, Millburn.
