The Chenault Duo
Exclusively performing works written for four hands, four feet, and one pipe organ console, duo organists Elizabeth and Raymond Chenault have commissioned, premiered, and recorded over sixty organ duets. For their renowned artistry they have indisputably earned “The World's Premiere Duo-Organ Team” title given by the Atlanta Journal & Constitution. The Chenault's duet career began in 1979 when Arthur Wills of England's Ely Cathedral composed “Toccata for Two” for them. The Chenaults subsequently commissioned duets, in a wide range of compositional styles, from over 25 U.S. and European composers, and have themselves arranged several pieces for organ duet.

Choirmaster of the Episcopal Cathedral in Chicago, he is also a former assistant organist of Saint Thomas Church in New York City. His program will include a presentation of Marcel Dupre’s Stations of the Cross, which will be both a musical concert and an opportunity for listeners to take a Lenten Journey through music.

Chris is Director of Music at Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church on Monument Avenue in Richmond. However, he is a Catholic and a Saint Bridget Parishioner. Christ is a regular substitute for Saturday Masses and helps out on Holy Days, thus, having played the Opus 42 organ almost as much as our Music Minister Allen Bean.
