Brenda Portman (b. 1980) — Prelude on an American Folk Hymn (2015) for organ

Organist and composer Brenda Portman (b. 1980) was educated at Wheaton College, Northwestern University, and University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music. Her doctoral research was on minimalism in twentieth-century Dutch organ music. She has studied with John Behnke, Edward Zimmerman, Douglas Cleveland, Marilyn Mason, Roberta Gary, and Michael Unger. The winner of numerous organ competitions, Portman is active as a performer and recording artist. Her discography includes “Pilgrimages: Organ Music of Rachel Laurin Inspired by Sacred Themes,” which was released in April 2016 on the Raven label. As a composer, Portman primarily composes sacred choral, vocal, and organ works.
