The Robert T Anderson Recital Series of the Dallas Chapter—American Guild of Organists, presents organist Lynne Davis in concert. For over thirty years, Lynne Davis made France her home, marrying Frenchman and Chartres International Organ Competition founder, Pierre Firmin-Didot. Between them the couple played a major role in the French organ music scene, initiating among other things the famous 1992 exhibition and recording of “Les Orgues de Paris”. Her unique living and working experience in France gives her the status of world authority in all French organ repertoire. She holds the “Certificat d’Aptitude de Professeur d’Orgue” delivered by the Republic of France. A renowned teacher, she has served as organ professor at the Conservatory of Music in Clamart near Paris and from 1997 to 2006 at the French National Regional Conservatory in Caen in Normandy. Lynne Davis performs extensively and always to enthusiastic critical acclaim both in Europe and North America. Her recordings include discs, radio broadcasts and live performances particularly on the famed organ at Chartres Cathedral in France where her disc “Musique pour Cathédrales” won the coveted French 5 Diapasons award. After Ms. Davis’ recording, “Lynne Davis en Concert” on the world-renowned Cavaillé-Coll organ at the church of St. Etienne in Caen in Normandy, her most recent CD is “Lynne Davis at the Marcussen organ in Wiedemann Hall” at Wichita State University. In 2011, Lynne Davis received the Excellence in Creativity Award from Wichita State University. Following the immense success of the American Alain Festival she organized at her university in Wichita to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Jehan Alain, she was awarded as a French citizen the prestigious distinction of Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres from the French Ministry of Culture and Communication in 2012. Her programme will feature the music of many prominent French composers including Henri Mulet, Jehan Alain and Nicolas De Grigny, on the colorful Schudi organ of St Thomas Aquinas. The Dallas Chapter of the American Guild of Organists, established in 1918 and comprised of over 220 local musicians, exists to promote the organ in its historic and evolving roles, to encourage excellence in the performance of organ and choral music, and to provide a forum for mutual support, inspiration, education, and certification of its membership.
