Welcome to my website! I am Ken Lowenberg and I have set up this website to make it easier for you to find my music. I have been composing and performing on the "King of Instruments" for many years and creating sacred music for the organ for much of that time.
A Little about me:
KENNETH LOWENBERG was born and raised in the Chicago area. He
attended Northwestern University (B Mus Ed), the Univ. of Southern
California (M.Mus in Composition), and the College of Church
Musicians at Washington Cathedral (FCCM), and has earned his AAGO and
FAGO degrees from the American Guild of Organists.
He retired in August, 2006, after 38 years of service, from the
position of Minister of Music at The Chevy Chase Presbyterian Church
in Washington, DC, and received the title Minister of Music,
Emeritus. There he headed a large music program including the concert
series, the Chevy Chase Concerts, and created the acclaimed Bach
Marathon which is still performed annually. His Chevy Chase Handbell
Ringers have enjoyed playing in the White House, the Kennedy Center,
on local TV and National Public Radio, and his Chancel Choir has sung
at Washington Cathedral.
Ken’s choral, organ, and handbell compositions-some of which
have been commissioned-have received annual
composers awards from ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors,
and Publishers) and are published by AGEHR, Selah, Hinshaw,
Hope, Art Masters Studios, Inc., H.W. Gray/Belwin/Warner, Lorenz,
MorningStar, and GIA. Ken has held local, regional, and national
offices in the Presbyterian Association of Musicians and the American
Guild of Organists.
He has given organ recitals and led church music workshops in many
venues in the Eastern and Central U. S. Ken's Chevy Chase Handbell
Ringers performed at the InterFaith Concert to an audience of 1,500
at Washington Cathedral, and, in that performance, the Massed Choir
sang an inter-faith anthem he had composed: “God and Light.”
Ken stays very active in the music scene in the Washington, DC
area. His hobbies include travel, composing, cooking, swimming,
gardening, and working out.
