Sought after for lectures and performances, praised for “enormous sensitivity and musicianship” (AAM Journal), and hailed as “elegantly assured” (Dallas Morning News), Damin Spritzer has performed organ recitals in France, Brazil, throughout America, and records internationally. She has been a featured artist for American Guild of Organist Conventions, and had the honor of being heard with Pipedreams radio broadcasts on numerous occasions as well as in the Netherlands and Canada.
Since 2015 Dr. Spritzer has served as Assistant Professor of Organ at the University of Oklahoma and continues to serve the Cathedral Church of Saint Matthew in Dallas as Artist-in-Residence for the Cathedral Arts Series. Previously she held positions with University Park United Methodist Church and Saint Rita Catholic Church (both in Dallas), Adjunct Professor at the University of North Texas in Denton, and during 2014 she was a Visiting Professor of Music at the University of Oklahoma.
Her first two commercial CD recordings are world-premiere discs of the music of René Becker, and were recorded at the Church of Saint Soloman and Saint Gregory in Pithiviers, France, and at the Cathédrale de la Sainte-Croix à Orléans, France. Both discs were released by RavenCD.com to critical acclaim, and two more volumes are forth-coming, focusing on Becker’s American years and on his unpublished manuscripts. The first volume of her critical edition series of the music of Becker was published last year with Leupold, and the second volume is slated to be released this fall. She has a four-recital tour of Germany in August of this year as well as several performances in the United States.
She received her doctorate from the University of North Texas, her Master of Music from the Eastman School of Music, and her Bachelor of Music from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, and serves as Sub-Dean of the Southern Plains Chapter of the American Guild of Organists and on the Board of Directors for the Leupold Foundation.
