Music for a Great Space (MGS) welcomes organist David Hurd as their second musical artist of the 2016-2017 season.  Hurd will perform works by Johann Sebastian Bach and Johann Ludwig Krebs, one of Bach’s most illustrious students. In addition, Hurd will perform three of his own works and end the program with an improvisation.

Hurd studied at Oberlin College, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and the Manhattan School of Music and has been widely recognized with a long list of awards, prizes, honors, and achievements including the African Diaspora Sacred Music Living Legends Festival Award in 2011.  Hurd served as organist and music director for the Church of the Holy Apostles in New York City until 2013 and taught at General Theological Seminary for 39 years, resigning in 2015 to focus on performing and sharing his worship and musicianship in interim posts with different congregations.

When not performing and composing, Hurd can be found playing recorders and practicing with the Chelsea Winds, an ensemble he helped found in 1993.
