Eugene Lavery

Don’t miss another opportunity to hear the fully restored Cawthron Organ at this very special organ recital.

Eugene Lavery is an exciting and versatile musician, highly sought after as a keyboard artist, conductor and teacher. Recent and upcoming engagements include solo recitals at St. Paul’s Cathedral, Oklahoma City, OK; Harvard University, Cambridge, MA; and St. John’s Cathedral, Napier, New Zealand.

Eugene currently serves as Director of Music at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Waco, Texas where he oversees the adult choir, the St. Alban’s Chorister Program, and a vibrant concert series. Previous church positions include Organist and Director of Music at Calvary Episcopal Church in Louisville and Artistic Director of the Cathedral Choir School of Delaware, one of the most prominent Episcopal chorister programs in the United States.

Eugene grew up in Nelson where he received his initial musical training before receiving his Bachelor of Music with First Class Honours from the University of Auckland. In 2007 Mr. Lavery relocated to New York after gaining entry to the prestigious Master of Music program at The Juilliard School under the tutelage of Paul Jacobs.

Pursuing a multi-faceted career, Mr. Lavery has appeared as an organist for live broadcasts for Television New Zealand and Radio New Zealand; served as conductor and organist for Royal School of Church Music courses in the United States, New Zealand, and Nigeria; and performed with the American Symphony Orchestra and the Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra.
