March Not Only Roars In But Bellows

There is a saying that March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb; at the Lutheran Church of Our Savior, March will roar in with an organ recital that is not to be missed. For the last thirteen years, Federico Teti has been the Director of Music at the church on Franklin Avenue, gracing the parishioners with his organ music during worship, and his leadership of the talented choir. On Friday, March 1 at 7:30 p.m., he will share his talents with a wider audience during an organ recital featuring melodies from Bach, Vivaldi, and Liszt, to name just a few of the classical greats.

Mr. Teti, affectionately known as “Maestro” to his parishioners, studied piano, choral conducting, organ and composition at the Santa Cecilia Conservatory of Music in Rome, where he graduated with the highest honors. He won the First Prize of the Competition for Young Organists, “Rome 1981” and his award-winning performance was broadcast on RAI, Italian National Radio. Mr. Teti also attended the Juilliard School in NYC, where he completed advanced studies in Organ Performance, and also studied the harpsichord. He made his Lincoln Center debut, playing the Theodore Kuhn tracker organ in Alice Tully Hall, and his conducting debut at Juilliard’s Paul Hall, Lincoln Center, conducting the Chopin Piano Concerto No. 2. In the spirit of outreach and compassion that is a hallmark of the Lutheran Church of Our Savior, he also performed at a benefit concert in Japan to help people of the area stricken by the earthquake and tsunami of 2011.

The Lutheran Church of Our Savior is located at 12 Franklin Ave., Port Washington and prides itself on a living, daring confidence in God’s grace, embracing each visitor as a whole person- questions, complexities and all. We welcome all of Port Washington (and beyond) to this very special evening, regardless of religious affiliations. Admission is free, (donations made by freewill are always appreciated) and there will be a reception immediately following to meet Mr. Teti.
