Jack Mitchener, Organist Jack Mitchener is recognized as one of the leading concert organists and teachers in his generation. He has been praised for playing that is technically brilliant, yet expressive and poetic. According to The American Organist, "Mitchener brings music to life with his supple rhythmic control, clear phrasing, energy, and sensitivity. In response to his recording on the historic Salem Tannenberg organ, Dulcet Tones, a reviewer for the International Record Review of London asserted: "Superb...an impressive and rather moving listening experience." Dr. Mitchener has concertized extensively throughout the USA, Europe, and Asia, and many of his performances have been heard in television and radio broadcasts such as American Public Media's Pipe Dreams hosted by Michael Barone. Since 2012 Dr. Mitchener has served as Director of the Townsend-McAfee Institute of Church Music, University Organist and Professor of Organ in the Townsend School of Music at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia. In 2017 he was appointed Artist-in-Residence at Peachtree Road United Methodist Church in Atlanta. For the American Guild of Organists, Jack Mitchener has been a chapter dean and board member and also a member of the National Committee on Professional Education. In this capacity, he helped to plan and execute national pedagogy conferences for the AGO including one held at the Institute of Sacred Music at Yale University. He also has served as an adjudicator for numerous competitions including those on the national level for the AGO as well as the Biarritz International Competition in France. He is a former President of the Board of Trustees of the Moravian Music Foundation, is a member of the Pi Kappa Lambda National Music Honor Society, and has been cited in numerous Who's Who publications. He is represented by Penny Lorenz Artist Management of Seattle, Washington. For more information about recordings and future performances, visit www.jackmitchener.com. Press Quotes "Mitchener played throughout the evening with polish and style, whether in the varied French works (F. Couperin, Dupré, Franck, Messiaen, Milhaud, and Saint-Saëns) or in Bach's Great Fugue in G Major (the Gigue)" "An excellent recital by Jack Mitchener, whose program displayed a technique both facile and expressive and an originality that never lapsed into the mannered." Jack Mitchener's performances are very good indeed, in terms of tempos, registration, and in phrasing." "Jack Mitchener's playing is brilliant and sensitive." - The Diapason "Mitchener brings all of this music to life with his supple rhythmic control, clear phrasing, energy, and sensitivity. - The American Organist "Mitchener has a flair for the Italian style, effected through his clear articulations and dramatic sense of timing" "He expertly brings out the unique features of each variation [Pachelbel, Ciacona in F minor] while also melding them into a larger structure." "The intimacy of the Pastorella [Bach] benefits from the chamber-like quality of the pipe voicing and from the organist's sensitive contrasts of touch." "Mitchener makes the transition from baroque to classical performance effortlessly." - HORP Report Silent Night (Christmas CD with the Bel Canto Company) "Sir David Willcocks's classic arrangement of "O Come, All Ye Faithful" is gloriously rendered and features a dazzling organ improvisation by Jack Mitchener."
