ARTIST PROFILES

Bob Flinn started playing theatrical pipe organs in 1981. As a member of the Pikes Peak Area Theatre Organ Society, Bob plays two organs in Denver and three in Colorado Springs. Bob plays old favorites, light jazz, Broadway songs, modern music, gospel and hymns, singalongs, light classics and ballads and blues. Bob has more than 750 in his repertoire.

Eva Cavaillé-Coll began to experiment with piano music in her early 20’s and quickly discovered her formidable natural talent as a musician. Wasting little time, she relocated to Connecticut to be trained in harmony and counterpoint under the tutelage of bassist Dorothy Stearns. In 2012 she moved to Colorado Springs and became involved in The Pikes Peak Area Theatre Organ Society.

Eval is exceptionally gifted in the art of classical style improvisation, composition, and finds inspiration in the works of Beethoven especially, focusing on his cycle of 32 piano sonatas as her core repertoire. She is currently making her mark in concert halls as a solo artist, and as a chamber music ensemble musician.

Brendan O’Donoghue grew up in Massachusetts where he first turned his ear to classical music after discovering the ballet music of Copland and Stravinsky. Since launching his freelance career in the Front Range, Brendan has performed in innumerable musical situations including dance bands, jazz ensembles, orchestras, world music and chamber recitals such as the one you are attending. Combining his distinctive wit with the power of his understated melodic sense, each of his performances leaves an indelible impression on the audience.
