About the event

A native of Denmark, Heinrich Christensen came to the US in 1998 and received an Artist Diploma in Organ Performance from the Boston Conservatory, in addition to degrees from conservatories in Denmark and France.

He was appointed Music Director of historic King's Chapel, Boston, in the year 2000, after serving as affiliate organist under the direction of Daniel Pinkham during the final two years of Dr. Pinkham’s 42-year tenure at the church.

Heinrich was a prizewinner at the international organ competitions in Odense and Erfurt and has given solo recitals on four continents; in the US in New York City, Chicago, Washington DC, and throughout New England. He has performed with the Boston Symphony Orchestra in Symphony Hall and at Tanglewood under the batons of Andris Nelsons, JoAnn Falletta, Thomas Adès, among others, and was a featured soloist in the BSO’s Ligeti 100. He has also performed with Boston Ballet, Handel & Haydn Society, and numerous choruses in the greater Boston area.

An avid proponent of contemporary music, he has premiered works by Daniel Pinkham, Carson Cooman, Graham Gordon Ramsay, James Woodman, and several others.  He has recorded several organ and choral CDs, and Daniel Pinkham’s works for solo voice and organ with Florestan Recital Project.  Heinrich is a past dean of the Boston chapter of the American Guild of Organists, and has given workshops and performed at both regional and national conventions of the AGO.
