A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Daniel Ficarri is a rising organist and composer based in New York City. He is currently pursuing a Master of Music degree at The Juilliard School, where he studies with organist Paul Jacobs. Mr. Ficarri is recognized as a performer of both new music and the standard classical repertoire — The New York Times listed his performance of John Cage’s “Souvenir” under the “Week’s 8 Best Classical Music Moments,” and WQXR broadcast his live all-Bach performance as part of their “Bach Organ Marathon.” He has performed in Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall with the Juilliard Orchestra, and he has given solo performances at New York City’s towering Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine and St. Thomas Episcopal Church. Other engagements have taken him around the country, from concerts with The Florida Orchestra to appearances in the Oregon Bach Festival.
Alexander Pattavina, trained in the organ studio of Paul Jacobs at The Juilliard School, is a native of Stoughton, Massachusetts. He received First Prize in the 2014 L. Cameron Johnson Competition in Storrs, CT and was also awarded the 2014 Ruth and Paul Manz Scholarship from the Lutheran Seminary in Chicago. Formerly, he worked as Organ Scholar of Christ Church in Bronxville, NY under conductor Philip Stopford. Alex was an editor and proofer for The St. Paul’s Hymnal (2015), and his composition for choir and organ, “All in a Stable Cold and Bare,” was premiered at Christ Church in December 2016 to be published by Hal Leonard. Mr. Pattavina has performed extensively throughout New York City and the Greater Boston area.
