The centerpiece of the concert, "The Revelations of Divine Love," was created by Carson Cooman, an American composer with a catalog of hundreds of works in many forms from solo instrumental pieces to operas, orchestral works to hymn tunes. Cooman's music has been performed on all six inhabited continents in venues that range from the stage of Carnegie Hall to the basket of a hot air balloon.

Cooman's primary composition studies were with Bernard Rands, Judith Weir, Alan Fletcher and James Willey.

As an active concert organist, Cooman specializes in the performance of contemporary music.

Over 300 new compositions by more than 100 international composers have been written for him, and his organ performances can be heard on a number of CD releases and more than 1,500 recordings available online.
