About John Fair
The rest is history. In addition to normal 12 year old interests, John was taking private piano, organ and clarinet lessons. Marching and concert bands were added to the regime a year or two later.
Beginning in high school, Bach became more than a hero. He became an obsession; and John was deeply committed to learning and being able to perform the complete organ works of J.S. Bach. This was a goal that was not fully realized; but the music of J.S. Bach remain's his favorite.
Repertory today includes many of Bach's works but includes music from all periods, including much of the organ works of contemporaries like Langlais, Rutter and Locklair.
