Dr. David Jenkins, organ and harpsichord, will present works of Alain, Bach and Boehm in a free faculty recital on Saturday, Oct. 15, at St. Mary’s Chapel at the Saint Paul Seminary. The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. Jenkins will be joined by Jane Garvin, flute, to perform “Trois Mouvements” for flute and organ by Jehan Alain, and “Sonata No. 3 in A Major” for flute and harpsichord by J.S. Bach.
Jenkins is liturgical music director at the St. Paul Seminary School of Divinity and teaches organ for the Music Department of the University of St. Thomas. He earned the D.M.A. in organ performance and the Performer’s Certificate from The Eastman School of Music, where he studied organ with Russell Saunders and harpsichord with Arthur Haas. He also holds degrees from the University of Iowa and Oberlin Conservatory.
Garvin, adjunct flute instructor at the University of St. Thomas, completed graduate studies at the New England Conservatory, where she was a fellow at the Tanglewood Music Center, and had the opportunity to play under Leonard Bernstein and Seiji Ozawa. As a freelance musician, Garvin has performed with the Minnesota Orchestra, the Intergalactic Contemporary Ensemble, the Boston Symphony and the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra. She is a member of Aeolus, a folk duo that plays music on native instruments from China, Africa, Ireland and several South American countries.
