For the remainder of July and August, Augustana is blessed to have Thomas Weisflog as guest organist at our 9:30 am worship services. Tom serves as the University organist at Rockefeller Chapel. Below is information from the Rockefeller website:
Weisflog came to the University of Chicago in 1969 as a graduate student in chemistry, began taking organ lessons with then University organist Edward Mondello, and the rest, as they say, is history!
Appointed as University organist at the University of Chicago in 2000, Thomas (Tom) directed the historic restoration (2006–08) of Rockefeller Chapel’s massive E.M. Skinner organ. He was instrumental too in the re-installation of the Reneker organ from the former Chicago Theological Seminary in Bond Chapel. He has served as organist and artist in residence with Chicago’s William Ferris Chorale and as organist at Temple KAM Isaiah Israel in Hyde Park.
Weisflog studied piano with Gavin Williamson, and organ with Edward Mondello and then with Norman Peterson at the Eastman School of Music. He has appeared with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Grant Park Symphony Chorus, and the Chicago Chorale, and has performed numerous recitals throughout North America and Europe. His recordings appear on the Meridian, New World, and Vox labels.
