We got to know Damin in the early 2000s when Bedient returned to Dallas, TX to convert the stop action on our Opus 33 from mechanical to electro-pneumatic operation. Her years of experience playing a Bedient organ make her an excellent resource for those needing information about our company. Please contact her with any questions you may have. From her website:
“Hailed as ‘elegantly assured’ by the Dallas Morning News, and featured as a “young talent” in interview and performances with nationally syndicated radio show Pipedreams, Damin Spritzer has performed organ recitals from coast to coast since receiving her first scholarship from the American Guild of Organists as a high school student. Ms. Spritzer’s performances are notable for varied programs that champion unknown romantic works for organ as well as new compositions by living composers, and she often collaborates with other instruments such as harp and trombone. Her commissioned work from award-winning composer Aaron Travers (Three Pieces for Organ) has been performed on at least nine separate occasions by a number of different organists.
Beginning in February of 2009, Ms. Spritzer joined the music staff of University Park United Methodist Church in Dallas, Texas as Associate Director of Music and Organist. From August 2000 until December of 2008, she was the Associate Director of Music and Organist for Saint Rita Catholic Church, also in Dallas. She is currently working towards the degree of Doctor of Musical Arts at the University of North Texas with Jesse Eschbach. She is also a recent graduate of two of the most prestigious music schools in the country, having received her Master of Music degree in Organ Performance from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York with David Higgs and her Bachelor of Music degree in Organ Performance from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, studying primarily with Haskell Thomson.”
