Lynne Davis, Concert Organist

Though American by birth, Lynne Davis’ career has been steeped in French music, culture, and style. Her career was launched by taking First Prize at the 1975 St. Albans International Organ Competition in England – the eighth organist to receive that honor since the competition’s founding in 1962.

Now a leading international concert artist and master teacher, she has performed in nearly every cathedral in France, numerous major cities throughout Europe, and from coast to coast in the United States.

Lynne Davis plays Hymne sur Veni Creator by Nicolas de Grigny (1671–1703) on the Marcussen & Søn organ in Wiedemann Hall at Wichita State University.

The program was part of the Rie Bloomfield Organ Series, “Wednesdays in Wiedemann,” on September 8, 2021.

“Lynne Davis played with precision and ‘le bon gout.’ Her sense of style was excellent and she clearly showed her mastery of all the French-style ornamentation.”
