   Gesu Parish will present Leon Couch III as the soloist for our monthly organ concert on Tuesday evening, April 9, at 7:30 p.m.  Dr. Couch currently serves on the faculty at Carroll University in Waukesha, WI.  From 2006-2010, he was College Organist at Converse College in Spartanburg, SC, where he taught organ and music theory at the undergraduate and graduate levels.  From 2002-2006, Dr. Couch designed and coordinated the music theory curriculum at Texas A&M University, where he was named the 2005-2006 Montague Teaching Excellence Scholar for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.  Earlier, he taught organ studio, music theory, and undergraduate mathematics at the University of Cincinnati.
 
  Dr. Couch presents organ recitals, master classes, and lecture-recitals throughout the United States.  He is represented by the Concert Artist Cooperative, as advertised in The Diapason and The American Organist.   He has presented at numerous international, national, and regional conferences, and particularly enjoys giving workshops and lectures to local American Guild of Organists (AGO) chapters, colleges, and the public. His recording Hamburger Rhetorik was released on the ProOrgano record label in August 2006, and his three-CD study of musical rhetoric Playing Dieterich Buxtehude's Music Rhetorically was published by in December 2007 by the American Guild of Organists.
 
   As a scholar, Dr. Couch concentrates on pragmatic applications of contemporary and historical music theory to keyboard performance.  He earned two doctoral degrees from the University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music:  the D.M.A. in Organ Performance, and the Ph.D. in Music Theory.  His undergraduate degrees in physics, mathematics, and music are from the University of Florida.  His principal organ teachers include Willis Bodine and Roberta Cary.  More information about Dr. Couch can be found at his website: http://www.profcouch.us/.  Several videos are on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/ProfCouch.
