Sam Nelson Concert at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church on May 20

Wrapping up its spring series of community concerts, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church (127 Summer St., Lynnfield) will host organist Sam Nelson in concert on Saturday, May 20, at 7:30 p.m. The event is free and the public is invited. The concert will feature organ works by Marcel Dupré, César Franck, Johann Sebastian Bach, Maurice Duruflé and more. A reception will follow the performance.

Nelson was born in Lynn, Mass., and held his first organist position at the age of 12. He earned a Bachelor of Music degree in Organ Performance from Gordon College in 2011 under the tutelage of Dr. Roy Brunner and Douglas Marshall. In 2012 he won second prize at the Albert Schweitzer Organ Festival. Nelson is the music director at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and is a regular substitute organist at Park Street Church, Boston. Currently, he is pursuing a Master of Music degree in Organ Performance at Boston University, studying organ with Peter Sykes.

When he isn’t playing organ, Nelson has served as Tour Manager and Organ Technician for Cameron Carpenter and the International Touring Organ, and he also plays keyboards for a local wedding band, Somerset.

The Parish of St. Paul’s was founded in Lynnfield in 1917. It is a growing and multigenerational parish of the Episcopal Church that works to deepen the spiritual and social life of our community through diverse outreach activities in Lynnfield and surrounding communities. More information about St. Paul’s is available at www.stpaulslynnfield.org.
