Organ virtuoso Raul Prieto Ramirez will give a free recital on Sunday, June 18 at 4 p.m. at First Baptist Church of Washington (1328 16th St., N.W.).

Ramirez, an internationally known touring artist, will perform on the church’s 118-rank Austin organ, one of the largest and most highly regarded pipe organs in the District. It was installed in 2013. Several world-class organists, including Diane Bish and Ken Cowan, have performed at First Baptist.

The Blade called Ramirez a “colossally talented organist” who plays “fearlessly” and “brazenly” in a 2015 review.

A reception featuring the artist will follow the recital.
