Taylor has toured throughout the world, performing in many countries and continents.

SEQUIM — Calvin Taylor, pianist and recording artist, will appear in a live concert of sacred music set for 4 p.m. Sunday at Sequim Adventist Church.

The public is invited to attend, and there is no charge for admission, though a free-will offering will be received at the church at 30 Sanford Lane.

Taylor has toured throughout the world, performing in North and South America, Europe, Ukraine and the Far East. He holds degrees in music from Oberlin Conservatory, the University of Michigan and the University of Kentucky,

Taylor has authored several music books, including “Spirituals for Piano,” “The Patriotic Piano,” “Spiritual Suite for Organ,” “Spirituals for Worship,” “Sacred Classics” and “Five Spirituals for Organ.” With more than 10 solo recordings to his credit, Taylor records for Master Disc Records.

Movements from his “Sunrise Symphony” have been performed by several orchestras including Nashville (Tenn.), Shreveport (La.), South Arkansas, Salt Lake City and Detroit symphonies, organizers said.

He was awarded a full scholarship to the Oberlin College Conservatory of Music. Organizers said he was the first student in the school’s 175-plus year history to improvise a graduate concert encore.

With an unusually large hand span of more than 1½ octaves, Taylor presents sounds and colors at the keyboard that normally would require four hands, organizers said.

He studied other instruments and was serving as a church organist at the age of 14. While in high school, Taylor was a member of both the Los Angeles Junior Philharmonic and the Southwest Youth Symphony.
