Kevin Vaughn

Kevin J. Vaughn performs regularly as a solo organ recitalist. He is director of music and organist at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in South Bend, Ind., and instructor of organ and harpsichord at Goshen College, Goshen, Ind. Recent engagements include lecture recitals at the University of Notre Dame, Valparaiso University, and for various American Guild of Organists chapters. He has appeared in solo recitals in California, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, New York, Ohio, and Washington and in collaborative programs in Illinois, Virginia, and Michigan. He also enjoys performing as soloist for Haydn and Handel organ concerti and as organist for major choral works, most recently Duruflé’s Requiem, Faure’s Requiem, Mendelssohn’s Elijah, and Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass.

Kevin was a semifinalist in the 2013-2014 cycle of the National Young Artist Competition in Organ Performance sponsored by the American Guild of Organists, and, in February 2015, he won first prize in the Immanuel Lutheran Church Organ Scholar Competition in Evanston, Illinois. He holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in piano, organ, and sacred music, including the first Doctor of Musical Arts degree in organ performance conferred by the University of Notre Dame. His former teachers include Phyllis Warner, Gail Walton, and Craig Cramer. An active member of the American Guild of Organists, Kevin currently serves as Dean of the St. Joseph Valley (IN) Chapter and holds the Guild’s Colleague certificate. He also maintains active membership in the American Musicological Society, the Association of Lutheran Church Musicians, and the Organ Historical Society.

Early Music Michigan was founded in 1996 as the Michigan Bach Collegium. In 2009, it changed its name to Early Music Michigan to emphasize its mission of performing a wide variety of early music—generally speaking, music written and performed before the nineteenth century–not limited to the works of J. S. Bach. As an early-music ensemble emphasizing historically-informed performance, it occupies a valuable niche, providing music and creative programming that would not otherwise be available in the greater Kalamazoo area.
