Nicholas Haigh, organist, Associate Director of Music at Christ Church Episcopal, Charlotte, and Margaret Carpenter Haigh, soprano, Adjunct Professor for Voice at University of North Carolina at Charlotte, will be the featured artists at the October Organ at Davidson program. An experienced continuo player and choral conductor, Nicolas has performed alongside leading members of ensembles such as the Academy of Ancient Music, American Bach Soloists, and the European Union Baroque Orchestra. As a repetiteur he has collaborated on projects with ensembles including the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Australian Chamber Orchestra, and the Israel Camerata. Nicolas has been privileged to perform at venues such as the Sydney Opera House; St Peter's Basilica; Cathedral of St John the Divine; St Paul's Cathedral; Westminster Abbey; St John's, Smith Square; and Liverpool Cathedral. He also performs regularly as both a soloist and accompanist on radio, accompanying choirs on Choral Evensong and In Tune (BBC Radio 3), as well as on Sunday Worship (BBC Radio 4). He can be heard as an organist on the CD Veni Emmanuel (Harmonia Mundi USA). His program includes works by J. S. Bach, G. W. Wenn, Iain Farrington, H. Howells, and Cesar Franck. He will be joined by his wife, soprano Margaret Carpenter Haigh, in selections from C. V. Stanford’s “Six Bible Songs.” A meet-the-artists reception will follow the concert.
