Amanda Mole is quickly emerging as one of the leading concert organists of her generation. She is the first-prize winner of numerous competitions, including the Tokyo International (2017), Miami International (2016, first and audience), Poister (2014), and Rodland (2014). She was also the first-place recipient of the Peter B. Knock Award (2014). In 2016 she was chosen as one of The Diapason’s “Top 20 Under 30.”
Amanda has performed across the USA, Europe, and Japan. In 2015, she was a featured performer at the New Haven Regional AGO Convention. In 2016 and 2018, she performed at both OHS National Conventions and consistently received excellent reviews in The American Organist, The Diapason, and The Tracker, hailing her as a rising “star” and describing her as playing “with authority and flair.” She has a solo recording that was released in March 2019 on the Naxos label and her performances have been broadcast nationally on Pipedreams.
Originally from Holden, Massachusetts, Ms. Mole is completing a DMA degree as a student of David Higgs at Eastman. She earned her MM degree from Yale where she studied organ with Martin Jean and was the only candidate in her class to receive the Church Music Studies Certificate for additional sacred music and theological studies. Prior to Yale, she obtained a BM degree with honors at Eastman studying with William Porter. Earlier studies were with Larry Schipull and Patricia Snyder.
Amanda is represented in North America by Karen McFarlane Artists, Inc.
