Kathleen Scheide

Preservation New Jersey welcomes harpsichordist Kathleen Scheide back to the beautiful acoustics of the 1867 Sanctuary for a performance of works by William Byrd, Robert W. Jones, Jean-Philippe Rameau and Domenico Scarlattti.

Kathleen Scheide (www.kathleenscheide.com) has concertized as an organ and harpsichord soloist throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Russia, the Far East and Caribbean. She has received touring artist grants from the Arkansas Arts Council, California Arts Council, the American Embassies in Prague and Vienna, and the Czech Embassy in St. Petersburg. Dr. Scheide regularly performs as an orchestral harpsichordist, and on historic keyboards with chamber music ensembles Le Meslange des Plaisirs and Voix seraphique.

Scheide earned degrees in early music (with honors) and organ performance (organ department prize) at New England Conservatory and the University of Southern California. Her teachers have included John Gibbons and Cherry Rhodes.

She teaches harpsichord at Westminster Choir College of Rider University, Princeton, and teaches online and sometimes traditional classes for Rowan College at Burlington. She lives in a 17th-century stone house, Wiggan, and plays organ in the 1740 stone barn at Church of the Loving Shepherd, Bournelyf, West Chester.

A Founding Member of various early keyboard societies, Dr. Scheide has served several terms on the Executive Committee of the Philadelphia Chapter, American Guild of Organists, and as Director of the Philadelphia Pipe Organ Encounter. She is also a Past Dean of the San Diego Chapter.

Dr. Scheide is also a published composer with a significant discography. Her compositions have been made available through Darcey Press, E.C. Schirmer, Piano Press, Time Warner, Wayne Leupold and World Library. Her recordings are available on Dutch HLM, Organ Historical Society, Palatine and Raven labels.
