In Mr. Houlihan’s hands, the organ delivered plenty of firepower and juicy, well-blended chords, like a homogeneous string section in a fine symphony orchestra.

The registrations were expert: silky-smooth crescendi and decrescendi, complete mastery of the swell-boxes. The mutual chemistry of organist, composer, and instrument was apparent from the start...It will long be remembered [Vierne 2012], I am sure, as one of New York’s all-time great organ recitals.
— Jonathan B. Hall, The Diapason

Organist Christopher Houlihan is widely acknowledged as one of the brightest stars in the new generation of American organists, praised by the media as “gifted” (New York Times), “dazzling” (Wall Street Journal), and “eloquent” (Los Angeles Times). He has performed in celebrated venues in major cities across North America and Europe, as well as at numerous conventions of the American Guild of Organists and the Organ Historical Society. Houlihan holds the position of John Rose College Organist-and-Directorship Distinguished Chair of Chapel Music at Trinity College in Hartford, Conn., succeeding his former teacher John Rose.
