Michael T.C. Hey has built a solid resume as a concert organist, playing services and shows at churches, including Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in New York and performing on concert stages, including Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and the Shanghai Oriental Art Center in China. 

He even played during a mass at Madison Square Garden with Pope Francis.

On Feb. 5, he brings his talents to Green Valley when he performs at Lutheran Church of the Risen Savior, 555 South La Cañada Drive, from 3 p.m. to 4:30.

I recently  talked with Michael about his career and the upcoming show. 

Michael spoke of practice being the key to his success. What are you really good at, and how much practice have you put in to master it?
