FREDERICK, Md.—A concert featuring a locally renowned musician performing compositions for organ will be held Feb. 15 at 3 p.m. in Coffman Chapel at Hood College.
Wayne L. Wold, associate professor of music, College organist and chair of the music department, will perform works by Bach, Buxtehude and Mendelssohn, as well as his own compositions.
Wold will perform on the chapel's Moller pipe organ. Built in 1955, the organ has since received two additions—the Sihler Memorial Trompetas Reales in 1971 and the Charles and Kathryn Z. Nicodemus additions in 1994. With 2,450 pipes, it is one of the largest pipe organs in the region.
Wold earned degrees from Shenandoah Conservatory, Wittenberg University and Concordia College, and is certified as an associate of the American Guild of Organists. He performs widely on organ and harpsichord, as both a solo and ensemble performer, and he appears frequently with the Hood Chamber Players and the Maryland Symphony Orchestra. He is the director of music ministry at First Lutheran Church of Ellicott City, Md., and for 17 years served as director of chapel music at Camp David. Wold is a prolific composer, with more than 300 of his compositions in print with publishers in the U.S. and Australia. He is the author of three books and numerous journal articles.
