Viscount Organs of Michigan is pleased to host its inaugural organ concert showcasing the newest digital organ technology. Johnny Kash, Director of Music and Worship at Ss. Peter and Paul will perform a diverse concert showcasing the tremendous tonal palette Viscount Physis organs offer.
Johnny Kash graduated from Wayne State University in Detroit, studying organ with Ray Ferguson and Gale Kramer. He earned a Bachelor of Music Degree in Organ Performance in 2000 and a Master of Music Degree in Organ Performance in 2005. Johnny has served as the Director of Music & Worship for Ss. Peter and Paul Roman Catholic Church on Detroit’s west-side since 1999. In addition to overseeing the Music Ministry at Ss. Peter and Paul, he also coordinates their yearly concert series, which he founded in 2002, that showcases talent at the local, national, and international level.
Johnny performs in concert periodically throughout the Detroit area, the United States, and Europe. In 2007 he gave a series of recitals in Poland, Denmark, and Sweden. In 2011 Johnny performed a series of recitals in Poland, this being his fourth visit to the country since 2002. Johnny also enjoys collaborating with other musicians to provide concerts for organ plus other instruments. Past concerts have included organ & brass, organ & flute, organ & french horn, organ & voice, and most notably – DUELING ORGANS (Combining the classic organ with the theatre organ!). However most of his playing can be heard during the hundreds of church services, weddings, funerals, graduations, and other liturgical events that he performs for throughout the year.
We hope you can join us for this exciting event. There will be time after the concert to explore the console, and organists will be welcome to play this fantastic new instrument.
