Living the dream

(Continued)

Fishell encourages people to chase their dreams and achieve them.

“If my parents were still alive today I know they would be so proud of me,” Fishell said. “My mother had such a big role in my musical development throughout my life. I have the job at IU that I have always wanted. This is such a privilege and by far the biggest blessing.”

Fishell has performed in many of the world’s greatest concert venues, including Suntory Hall, Tokyo; King’s College, Cambridge; Berlin’s Schauspielhaus; the Liszt Academy, Budapest; and the Prague Spring Festival. She has been a featured recitalist and lecturer at five national conventions and five regional conventions of the American Guild of Organists. In addition to a full schedule of eclectic programs, Fishell has embarked upon a 21-concert project, “The Seasons of Sebastian,” in which she is performing the complete organ works of J. S. Bach for the first time on campus and in the Bloomington community.

Recent and upcoming recitals include concert tours of Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe and recitals in the United States for conventions of the AGO, Presbyterian Association of Musicians, and numerous churches, universities, and concert halls. Fishell is looking forward to moving to Germany next year for eight months to study music.

“I am excited about being a student again. I want to be a sponge and just soak everything up,” she laughed.

“No matter what your age is you can always go after your dreams. Coming from Rushville, I can relate to so many people I meet and I am proud of my roots here. I learned to be humble and be resilient with setbacks because you are always going to have them.”

Fishell and her husband, Colin, live in Bloomington.

Fishell will have a recital at the St. Paul Lutheran Church, 6045 E. State St. in Columbus at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 25. Admission is free.
