Olivier Latry, tenured organist at Notre-Dame Cathedral, Paris, will perform at 7 p.m. Feb. 28 at The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Lexington.

The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd presents Olivier Latry, one of three primary organists at Notre-Dame Cathedral  in Paris, in performance at 7 p.m.  tonight.

Latry, 52, won a competition to become tenured organist on Notre-Dame’s great organs when he was 23. He plays a variety of French music from the 17th through the 20th centuries and specializes in improvisation. At  Good Shepherd, he will be playing the church’s new Miller & Wrigley Organ, which was completed and dedicated last summer.

Tickets to tonight’s performance are $20. The concert is co-presented by Good Shepherd and the Lexington and Louisville chapters of the American Guild of Organists.
