Improv Fest 2003
Jennings, Paul Jacobs,
Kyle Babin, Jason
Roberts, and Jared Johnson.
On the first anniversary of the dedication of the Flentrop Organ
donated by William and Loyde Ortel, five students performed on it
as part of the Be Lifted Up! event held
at the Institute on April 27, 2003. The students, who study improvisation
with William Porter here, each improvised on a different theme in
a different style. The performance was simulcast in the Great Hall,
where members of the Yale community and local congregations watched
and listened and partook of an afternoon tea. Click the organist's
name above for their thoughts on improvisation.
