Since 2015 Dr. Spritzer has served as Assistant Professor of Organ at the University of Oklahoma and continues to serve the Cathedral Church of Saint Matthew in Dallas as Artist-in-Residence for the Cathedral Arts Series. She performs nationally and internationally, with recent concerts in France, Brazil, Italy, Germany, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Houston, and many others, including presentations and performances for both chapters and conventions of the American Guild of Organists, diverse music festivals, and conferences.
Upcoming performances include several performances in the United States, four recitals with the Terra Sancta Festival in Israel in October, and a performance at the 2018 American Guild of Organists National Convention.
Previously she held positions with University Park United Methodist Church and Saint Rita Catholic Church (both in Dallas), Adjunct Professor at the University of North Texas in Denton, and during 2014 she was a Visiting Professor of Music at the University of Oklahoma.
Her first three commercial CD recordings are world-premiere discs of the music of René Becker. Two were recorded in France: at the Church of Saint Soloman and Saint Gregory in Pithiviers, France, and at the Cathédrale de la Sainte-Croix à Orléans, France, and both the first two discs were released by RavenCD.com to significant international critical acclaim. The third CD was recorded and released in 2017 at the historic Kimball organ of St. John’s Cathedral in Denver. A fourth volume is planned, focusing on Becker’s unpublished manuscripts. Becker having been the topic of her doctoral dissertation, she edits a continuing multi-volume critical edition of Becker’s organ music for Wayne Leupold Editions, which will also market her monograph on the composer.
Spritzer received her doctorate from the University of North Texas, her Master of Music from the Eastman School of Music, and her Bachelor of Music from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, and serves as Sub-Dean of the Southern Plains Chapter of the American Guild of Organists and on the Board of Directors for the Leupold Foundation.
