Jeremiah Martin, organ
Admission €15; concessions €12

Jeremiah Martin, a native of county Galway, is currently a cardiothoracic surgeon in southern Ohio, USA. His lifelong passion for the arts began with the study of violin and traditional Irish music where he won awards at An t-Oireachtas and Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann. He was introduced to the organ at the Schola Cantorum of St Finian's College, Mullingar, and continued piano studies on scholarship at the Royal Irish Academy of Music. Under the instruction of Frances Moore at the Limerick Municipal School of Music, he won organ competitions at Dublin’s Feis Ceoil and obtained his Fellowship (FTCL) of Trinity College London in Organ Performance. He has performed solo and ensemble recitals at home in Ireland, in Europe and in North America. During the pandemic, Jerry joined the emerging community of organists leveraging online platforms and technologies to reach new and wider audiences. He is currently studying the works of Sir Charles Villiers Stanford whose centenary we celebrate next year – his goal is to continue to explore musical literature that is less-often heard, while celebrating the heritage of the organ as instrument and musical canvas.
