From 1962 to 1964 Ann Labounsky lived and studied in Paris as a recipient of a Fulbright Grant. As an organ student of André Marchal and Jean Langlais, she immersed herself in the French organ tradition; she studied most of Langlaiss compositions with the composer, and played them for him on the organ at Sainte-Clotilde. This concert celebrates the centenary of Langlais’ birth with a program of his works.
