Omaha organist to perform in Cathedral

Marie Rubis Bauer, director of music for the Archdiocese of Omaha and organist at its St. Cecilia Cathedral, will perform at 8 p.m. May 11 at the Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland.

Rubis Bauer, one of a handful of female cathedral music directors in the nation, will perform works by 20th-century and contemporary composers such as Dan Locklair, Olivier Messiaen and Petr Eben.

She is the only female artist on the Cathedral of Christ the Light organ recital schedule this year.

Rubis Bauer joined the staff at St. Cecilia as cathedral organist in 2003 for the inauguration of the Martin Pasi, Op. 14 dual temperament pipe organ. Since 2005, she has directed the cathedral and archdiocesan choirs, and serves as director of the School of Music in the St. Cecilia Institute for Sacred Liturgy, Music and the Arts.

As organist and harpsichordist, Rubis Bauer has performed solo concerts and concertos throughout the United States and in Germany, France, Sweden, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Poland. She represented the United States in Fatima, Portugal, at the International Congress on Liturgical Music. Her performances have been aired regularly on Pipedreams produced by Public Radio International. She is chair of the American Guild of Organist's National Competition in Organ Improvisation and serves on the steering committee of the Conference of Roman Catholic Cathedral Musicians.

Rubis Bauer graduated with degrees in organ from the University of Kansas and Augustana College. She has published articles in the area of worship and music and is a contributing author to two books. As organist, conductor, harpsichordist and producer, she is featured on five compact disc recordings.
