About the Preformer

A native of Longview, Texas, Austin Ferguson played the Kniker Carillon at The University of Texas at Austin from 2011 to 2015, performing daily recitals and supervising student carillon instruction. He graduated from UT in the spring of 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts in Music Theory.

He is an active member of the Guild of Carillonneurs in North America, where he serves as Co-Editor of Carillon News, the Guild’s newsletter, and on the Legal Committee. In July 2020, he was elected to and began serving his first term of the Guild’s Board of Directors.

He was named Carillonneur of Mayo Clinic in February 2017, where he performs eight weekly recitals on the 1928 Rochester Carillon, the only instrument of its kind in North America owned by a medical center. In addition to his work at Mayo, Austin serves as a piano and voice teacher at the Rochester Academy of Music and Co-Director of Music at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Rochester.
