Hailed by the New York Times as “splendid,” “nimble and dynamic,” Renée Anne Louprette holds a unique place in the concert, sacred music and academic communities of greater New York City and beyond. Recently appointed Organist and Director of Music of the French parish of L’Église de Notre Dame on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, she presides over the church’s 1924 Casavant organ and directs a choral program of singers recruited from the Columbia University community. In the summer of 2013, Ms. Louprette was appointed to the organ faculty of the Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
