Since winning the Albert Schweizer Competition, American organist Christopher Holman has performed on some of the most important historic and modern organs in Europe and North America. As a guest artist, he has most recently appeared at the BachFest Leipzig, Festival international de l’orgue ancienne in Sion, Switzerland (the oldest organ in the world), and the Eastman Rochester Organ Initiative. He has released two recordings, and his performances have been broadcast on German and Swiss national television and radio.

As a church musician, he is Hauptorganist at the Heilig Geist Kirche in Suhr, Switzerland, and plays regularly at the Elisabethenkirche in Basel. Thanks to a fellowship from the Frank Huntington Beebe Fund, he is researching and studying historic organs throughout Europe while based at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Switzerland. He studied with Robert Bates at the University of Houston, and Dana Robinson at the University of Illinois.
