Bryan Anderson, Concert Organist
2023 Pierre S. du Pont First Prize Winner Longwood Gardens International Organ Competition

The exceedingly great level of musicality, the fearlessness of his performance, and the exacting technical prowess exhibited by Bryan Anderson compelled the jury of the 2023 Longwood Gardens International Organ Competition to unanimously name him, out of 10 stellar competitors, the First Prize Winner of this illustrious event. The Diapason, which named Bryan to its “20 under 30” Class of 2017, has called his playing “brilliant;” Classical Voice of North Carolina has described his playing as “simply first class.” He is Music Director for St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church and School in Houston, Texas.

Bryan Anderson, as part of his Longwood competition prize, is represented for three concert seasons in North America exclusively by Phillip Truckenbrod Concert Artists, LLC.

We are very happy to welcome him to St. James! Concert length is approximately one hour with no intermission.
