“She presented herself as a communicative player with no shortage of imaginative ideas, with fingers fully capable of backing them up, and with feet which are not just nimble on the pedals, but every bit as expressively articulate as her fingers.” (Michael Dervan, The Irish Times)
Hailed by The New York Times as “splendid,” Renée Anne Louprette performs widely as organ recitalist, accompanist, and teacher. Based in New York City, she has performed with many of the city’s premiere ensembles, including the Mostly Mozart Orchestra and the New York Choral Society, and she has appeared in Carnegie, Avery Fisher, Alice Tully, and Merkin Halls. Her international recital tours have taken her to the United Kingdom, Ireland, Scotland, and Australia, and most recent U.S. performances were at Yale University, Lincoln Center, and Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center. Her recording of J.S. Bach’s “Great Eighteen Chorales” (on the ACIS label) was named Critics’ Choice 2014 by The New York Times. Ms. Louprette is University Organist/Coordinator of the Organ Department at Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University, and is Associate Director of Music/Organist of the Unitarian Church of All Souls in New York City.
Renée Anne Louprette is represented in North America exclusively by Phillip Truckenbrod Concert Artists, LLC.
