Christian Bischof

Christian Bischof, organist at St.-Margaret-Kirche in Munich, Germany and a rising star, performed on September 30 at St. Augustine Cathedral, Kalamazoo. In a conversation with Cara Lieurance which also includes Karl Schrock and Tom Fielding, he discusses his training as a performer and his certification as an organ "expert" - someone qualified to diagnose and repair this highly complex instrument.

Bischof's U.S. tour also includes a performance and master classes at Hill Auditorium in Ann Arbor. In Kalamazoo, he appeared on the Sacred Music at the Cathedral series, created by Tom Fielding.
