Dr. Naki Sung Kripfgans has recorded her first CD on the 44-rank Kimball/Reuter organ at First United Methodist Church of Ann Arbor (Ann Arbor, Michigan). This CD includes organ repertoire ranging from consequential works by J. S. Bach to the American premiere recording of Variations on Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star by Takeshi Kondo. You will also find a hidden gem in organ repertoire, Suite No. 1 by Florence Beatrice Price who was the first nationally acclaimed African American woman composer along with Henri Mulet's post-Romantic organ works. A winner of the 2012 University of Michigan Organ Improvisation Competition, Naki is a concert organist and pianist who is known for her expressive playing and virtuosity. She has performed regionally as well as internationally in Western Europe, Russia, and South Korea. Her European debut was at Stiftskirche, St. Arnual, Germany in 2009, and was followed by an appearance at the 'Hör Zu' concert series in Saarbrücken, Germany in 2010, and a solo recital at the International Organ Festival Orgues sans frontières of Germany, Luxemburg and France in September, 2011. She has also appeared as a soloist at the University of Michigan Organ Conference, the University of Michigan Organ Symposium, and concerts sponsored by the Ann Arbor Chapter of the American Guild of Organists. Naki received her Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Performance (Liturgical, Church, and Synagogue Music) from the University of Michigan, where she studied with Dr. Marilyn Mason. She also holds a master's degree in Piano Performance from the University of Michigan, and a bachelor' degree in Music from the University of Northern Iowa.
