Experience Evensong in the transcendence of historic Trinity Church with choir

and the landmark 1924 E.M. Skinner organ. This 35-minute jewel of a service

will begin at 5 PM and will be followed at 5:45 PM by an organ recital played by

esteemed San Francisco organist, pianist, and composer Angela Kraft Cross.

A graduate of Oberlin College/Conservatory of Music in 1980 with bachelor’s

degrees in Physics and Organ Performance, she then earned her Doctor of

Medicine degree at Loma Linda University. Her organ teachers have included

Louis Robilliard, Marie-Louise Langlais and William Porter and she has studied

composition with Pamela Decker. She was awarded the Associateship credential

of the American Guild of Organists in 2001 and has given over six hundred

concerts worldwide.

In addition to her musical career, Dr. Kraft Cross retired in 2011 having worked

22 years as an ophthalmic surgeon at Kaiser Permanente, and now volunteers

as an ophthalmologist at Samaritan House. She deeply enjoys teaching young

organists. Dr. Kraft Cross is the founding director of the San Francisco Peninsula

Organ Academy, a nonprofit formed in 2014 supporting young concert organists

with scholarships on short intensive overseas study trips. She is a member of

Concert Artist Cooperative III.

This concert will feature works by J.S. Bach, Brahms, Vaughan Williams, Daquin

and Langlais, as well as original works by Dr. Kraft Cross.
