The 2020 and 2021 Pogorzelski-Yankee Commissions

Promising to add a major composition to the organ repertoire every year in perpetuity, the Pogorzelski-Yankee new music competition owes its existence to the generosity of Ronald G. Pogorzelski and Lester D. Yankee. We present performances of the 2020 and 2021 winners alongside a time of conversation among the composers and performers, moderated by Chelsea Chen.
