Christian Lane (MM '08)

August 26, 2013

Christian Lane is entering his sixth year as Associate University Organist and Choirmaster at Harvard’s Memorial Church, where he arrived after graduating from Yale and where they have recently completed a project to install two new pipe organs. His first solo CD was released last year, and two further discs on Harvard’s new instruments are being prepared for release in the coming months. On campus, he has worked to develop a culture of organ study and performance that was non-existent before he arrived. He now has the pleasure to teach a studio of organists that rivals, in both number and quality, many of our country’s established organ departments (even though my students receive no academic credit for lessons)!
