John Ferguson is internationally recognized for his ability to create and lead incredibly moving and musically excellent hymn festivals. He is featured in this concert, which is part of First Presbyterian’s Arts for the Soul concert series. Ferguson retired in 2012 after serving 29 years as Elliot and Klara Stockdal Johnson Professor of Organ and Church Music and Cantor to the Student Congregation at St. Olaf College, Northfield, Minnesota. During his tenure, the organ department at the college defied national trends by growing in enrollment and in quality. In retirement, he continues to design and lead hymn festivals for which he is internationally known. He also composes and arranges, and is at work on his fourth book exploring his philosophy of the vocation of the church musician.
