CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – The second program in the Noontime Organ Recital Series at Campbellsville University will be given by Philip Hines, organist at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Louisville, Ky., with Dr. Reese Land, assistant professor of music/trumpet at CU, on trumpet, on Tuesday, Oct. 14 in the Ransdell Chapel.

They will be performing works by Jeffrey Blersch, Pierre du Mage, Giovanni B. Viviani, Denis Bédard and Paul Vidal.

The organ program begins at 12:05 p.m. and is open to the public free of charge. It concludes at 12:35 p.m.

“The series is designed to provide an opportunity for those in the community to hear outstanding organists perform on our prized instrument in short concert programs during their lunch break,” said Dr. Wesley Roberts, professor of music at CU, who was the first organist to play in the series.

Hines, the organist, is a graduate of the University of Louisville where he had the opportunity to study organ with professor Melvin Dickinson. He has been involved with liturgical music at Holy Spirit Parish since 1976 and has served as organist or recitalist for numerous liturgical and secular events, including the 1994 dedication of the Cathedral of the Assumption, the 2000 Jubilee Mass, celebrated by the Papal Nuncio, at St. Meinrad Archabbey, the inaugural recital of the new pipe organ at the Abbey of Gethsemani in 2003, the 1993 Organ Historical Society National Convention and the August 2007 installation mass of Louisville Archbishop Joseph Kurtz.

Hines is a past-dean of the Louisville Chapter of the American Guild of Organists and vice president of the Bauer Foundation, which oversees the preservation of the historic 1928 Pilcher 5288-pipe organ at Louisville Memorial Auditorium.

Land, who has served at CU since August 2007, is a graduate of University of Illinois, where he received his doctorate, and the University of Louisville, where he received his master of arts degree.

Land’s doctoral studies were with Dr. Michael Ewald and Ronald Romm, principal trumpet of the world-famed Canadian Brass quintet.

Land has performed in concerts throughout America, both as solo trumpet and as principal trumpet of the Brass Company quintet.

In service to the Louisville Archdiocese, he has performed at ordinations and other diocesan services, including an anniversary liturgy for Archbishop Thomas Kelly.

The public is invited to the free performance. For more information, contact Dr. Wesley Roberts at or call the School of Music at (270) 789-5237.
