Peter Krasin­ski, an inter­na­tion­ally acclaimed silent film live accom­pa­nist, pre­sented a clas­sic organ reper­toire favorites pro­gram to demon­strate the majesty of this King of Instru­ments — August 12, 2018 — on the his­toric Hook organ at Mechan­ics Hall, Worces­ter, Mass­a­chu­setts.

PETER EDWIN KRASINSKI is broadly rec­og­nized as a moti­vat­ing con­sul­tant for the pipe organ com­mu­nity, and as a con­duc­tor, organ­ist and music edu­ca­tor, whose imag­i­na­tive and ener­getic per­for­mances ele­vate and inform audi­ences. Along with reg­u­lar con­cert appear­ances he spe­cial­izes in the art of live impro­vised silent film accom­pa­ni­ment, world­wide. He is the recip­i­ent of a num­ber of prizes includ­ing the First Prize in Impro­vi­sa­tion from the Amer­i­can Guild of Organ­ists National Com­pe­ti­tion.

Mr. Krasin­ski, past Dean of the Boston chap­ter of the Amer­i­can Guild of Organ­ists, cur­rently serves as Organ­ist at First Church of Christ, Sci­en­tist in Prov­i­dence, Rhode Island, and is fac­ulty mem­ber of St. Paul’s Choir School, Cam­bridge, Mass­a­chu­setts. He reg­u­larly presents mas­ter­classes in impro­vi­sa­tion to the Har­vard Organ Soci­ety. He holds both a Bach­e­lor of Music Degree in Music Edu­ca­tion and Organ Per­for­mance, and the Mas­ter of Sacred Music Degree from Boston Uni­ver­sity.

…the audi­ence mem­bers were gen­uinely amazed at what you did. I’m cer­tainly one of those who is amazed – I don’t know how you do it, but you make a movie come alive … I have heard you do Phan­tom many times, and every per­for­mance is fresh and inter­est­ing.”
