*NEW*Watch the Grammy Awards for a Familiar Community of Christ Name
Jan Kraybill’s recently released album, The Orchestral Organ, has been nominated in three Grammy categories. Kraybill is organist-in-residence at Community of Christ Headquarters, Independence, MO, USA. The Sunday, January 26, awards ceremony for these categories begins at 2:30 p.m. Central and can be viewed live on Grammy.com. Kraybill will be in the audience.
Kraybill’s recording was made on the Julia Irene Kauffman organ in Helzberg Hall at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. Kraybill plays and oversees the care of the Kansas City area’s three largest pipe organs: Community of Christ Auditorium’s 113-rank Aeolian-Skinner and Temple’s 102-rank Casavant, and the 102-rank Casavant at the Kauffman Center.
For many years, Kraybill was principal organist for Community of Christ. She holds a doctorate in organ performance from the University of Missouri-Kansas City’s Conservatory of Music and Dance. In 2010 she achieved the distinction of fellow of the AGO, an organist’s highest certification level.
Kraybill also is organist at Village on Antioch Presbyterian Church, Overland Park, Kansas, USA.
