Elliott’s eclectic programming for full concerts is based on his experience giving half-hour recitals in Salt Lake City as principal organist of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Many attending those short recitals have never been to a classical or sacred music performance. Hence, the eclecticism.
“If you don’t like this, wait till the next piece. It’s bound to appeal to you,” Elliott said in a phone interview.
Following that idea, he will be offering listeners a musical mix for his June 7 concert at the Cathedral of St. John in Downtown Albuquerque.
