Evensong will be offered at 3:00 p.m. PST via Zoom. At 4:00 p.m. PST, organist Joy-Leilani Garbutt will offer a LIVESTREAM organ recital on the Flentrop Organ from St. Mark’s, Berkeley. Following the recital, there will be an opportunity to “meet and greet” with the artist.
Joy-Leilani Garbutt is Director of Music at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, San Francisco and co-founder of the Boulanger Initiative.
Joy-Leilani is the recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship and spent 2018-19 in France pursuing research on early 20th-century French organ music by female composers, particularly Joséphine Boulay, Mel Bonis, Nadia and Lili Boulanger, Jeanne Demessieux, and Marie-Véra Maixandeau. She is a Ph.D. candidate in musicology, and has recently been a student of Dr. Jeremy Filsell and Sophie-Veronique Cauchefer-Choplin. In the spring of 2018 she co-founded the Boulanger Initiative, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting music composed by women through performance, education, commissions, and advocacy.
She holds a Master of Education degree from The Harvard Graduate School of Education and a Master of Music in organ performance from Northwestern University, where she served as Organ Scholar for the Alice Millar Chapel. In addition to solo recitals in the U.S. and France, Joy-Leilani has performed with the New England Youth Ensemble in Australia, England, New Zealand, Mexico, and South Africa.
