The Loyola University New Orleans College of Music and Fine Arts proudly presents an exciting performance of César Franck: L’oeuvre Intégral Pour Orgue (The Organ Works of César Franck) performed by Marcus St. Julien, D.M.A., on the historic 1926 E.

St. Julien is a native of New Orleans, where his earliest training included piano study with Marie Théard and organ study with Anne L. Ganucheau, Elise Cambon, and Herndon Spillman. He holds a bachelor of music degree in organ performance from Loyola University and a master of music degree in music theory from Indiana University. St. Julien earned a doctor of musical arts degree in organ performance from the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University, under the direction of Clyde Holloway. In April 1992, he won first prize at the graduate level of the 21 annual Wm. C. Hall Pipe Organ competition in San Antonio, Texas. He has been heard in recitals throughout the South, including a program for the 1989 national convention of the Organ Historical Society in New Orleans, as well as the dedication recital of the Dobson pipe organ at St. Joseph’s Abbey in Covington, Louisiana, in 2001. Currently, he is the organist of Temple Sinai Reformed Congregation and is an instructor on the faculty of the College of Music and Fine Arts at Loyola, teaching organ, music theory, and voice.
