JOHN SEBOLDT is organist at Our Savior's Lutheran Church (ELCA), Milwaukee, and pursues a unique combination of technological, ecclesiastical, and musical interests. In the course of master's and doctoral studies at The University of Iowa, he studied with Delbert Disselhorst, Delores Bruch, and Gerhard Krapf; additional choral study at the Royal School of Church Music (UK) and organ coaching with Harald Vogel at the North German Organ Academy, round out his training. He has taught organ and harpsichord at Cornell College, Mount Vernon, IA, and served as Dean of the River Valley Chapter, AGO. As a recording engineer he has captured several regional performances for broadcast on American Public Media's Pipedreams radio program, and recorded and edited Rhonda Sider Edgington's CD release Subtlety and Sparkle, at the Wahl organ at Augustana Lutheran, Hyde Park, Chicago. Organ performances featured on the “Pipedreams” radio series include the 100th anniversary program on the distinguished organ at New Vienna, IA by Milwaukee builder William Schuelke. In years past, he explored the use of synthesizers with the pipe organ, as organist/synthesist at Chrism Masses and choral festivals at the Cathedral of Saint Paul (Minnesota). His synthesizer accompaniment to Monte Mason’s “Psalm 139” is included on the “Pipedreams Premieres” CD from American Public Media.

About the Series: In February 2002 the Wednesday Noon Concert Series was begun. For the most part, each Wednesday year round half-hour concerts take place between 12:15 and 12:45. A variety of performers, including choir, guitar, cello, piano, organ, voice, string trio, harp and others, provide a mid-day respite to downtown workers and guests. Though a freewill offering is taken, there is no charge to attend the concerts. The Wednesday Noon Concert Series is the only on-going series of its kind in the Greater Milwaukee area. It was voted “Best Music Before Sundown” by the Shepherd Express in 2008.
