We are very pleased to welcome to our portfolio all the way from the Philippines, Alejandro D. Consolación II. Alejandro enjoys a dual career as both organist and composer and we will be adding some of his choral music to our portfolio later in the year, but we start off with two of his organ pieces, 'Four pieces for Organ (Manuals only)' and 'Sortie (As with gladness)' which are both available in printed and PDF download formats (see below).
As an organist, he studied with Thomas Dressler, Peter Conte and Matthew Lewis, and attended master classes with Johann Trummer, Guy Bovet, Jeffrey Brillhart and Frederic Blanc, while he studied composition with Manuel Maramba, OSB, Jonas Baes, and Christian Carrie. He finished his Masters degree in Organ Performance at the Westminster Choir College, Princeton New Jersey and earned his Licentiate (LRSM) and DipABRSM at the Associated board of the Royal Schools of Music both with distinction.
AJ, as his friends fondly call him, was a member of the artistic committee and resident composer for the International Bamboo Organ Festival from 2006 to 2011. He was also a former organ scholar of the Trinity Church in Princeton, New Jersey, and was Director of Music at the Episcopal Church of Princeton University.
In recent years, he was invited to write music for the Taipei Male Choir, Philippine Madrigal Singers, Little Singers of Yokosuka Arts Theatre in Japan, Westminster Choir College and Manila Cathedral – Basilica, Philippines. He is currently the artist-in-residence and organist of the Union Church of Manila, organist at the Santuario de San Antonio in Forbes Park, Makati City, and music director - conductor of CANTUS.
