Abraham Ross enjoys an active career as a concert organist, harpsichordist, and director, presenting imaginative programmes informed by the most recent research on performance practice, technology, and musicological context. He holds degrees from College of the Holy Cross, Oberlin Conservatory, and McGill University, where he recently completed his doctoral research on contrapuntal organ improvisation and arrangement practices in early modern Italy. In addition to solo concerts throughout North America, Abraham recently appeared in ensembles such as Musica Angelica (Los Angeles), the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, and Apollo’s Fire Baroque Orchestra.
Abraham’s formative musical studies took place in his hometown of Bangor, Maine on an 1860 organ by American firm E. & G. G. Hook, an experience that inspired him to take up musicological studies and organ performance as a career. He now serves on the board of St. John’s Organ Society, an organization dedicated to the preservation of that instrument.
