The third concert in the Hartness Organ Series will feature Furman University Organist Charles Tompkins, professor of music. Mr. Tomkins will present works by Sweelinck, J.S. Bach, Vierne, and Price, as well as Vincent Persichetti’s 1960 “Sonata for Organ.” Tompkins also serves as organist for John Knox Presbyterian Church and artist-in-residence for Christ Church (Episcopal), both in Greenville.
The Hartness Organ Series presents recitals each season by major national and international organ recitalists. These concerts feature the Hartness Organ, Opus 121 of C.B. Fisk, based in Gloucester, Massachusetts. The 42-stop organ, a gift from the late Tom and Edna Hartness, was presented in honor of Bobby and Becky Berry Hartness in 2004.
