Mr. Jennings returned to the United States in August, 2015 and began his Master Degree track in Music at the Yale School of Music and the Yale Institute of Sacred Music. He enjoys an active concert schedule. Weston will play works of Dietrich Buxtehude, Louis Lefébure-Wély, Jehan Alain, Claude Débussy and the pyrotechnic Fantasy and Fugue on Ad nos ad salutarem undam by Franz Liszt.
