International Performer of the Year 1997

  Robert Glasgow

Robert Glasgow joined the faculty of the University of Michigan in 1962 after having taught at MacMurray College in Illinois. He graduated with distinction from the Eastman School, where he was also awarded the Performer's Certificate. MacMurray College named him an honorary doctor of music, and his Michigan colleagues honored him with the Harold Haugh Award for excellence in the teaching of performance. He is considered among the most respected American organists. His appearances throughout the United States bring continual renewed enthusiasm and critical acclaim. Glasgow records for Prestant Records, which released his album of works by César Franck. His musicianship has earned him the universal respect of his colleagues, as evidenced by invitations to perform at more than three dozen national and regional conventions for the American Guild of Organists, as well as frequent invitations to teach and perform at clinics and organ institutes around the country. He gave a recital, a lecture, and a master class at the International Congress of Organists at Cambridge University, and was a featured recitalist and lecturer at the American Classic Organ Symposium in the Mormon Tabernacle, marking the renovation of its historic organ.

Robert Glasgow died on September 10, 2008.

Robert Glasgow's recital for the International Performer of the Year Award was presented on 16 May 1997 at the Church of the Holy Family.
