Upcoming engagements include performances of Karg-Elert's Organ Symphony at Hedvig Eleonora Church in Stockholm, and Górecki's Symphony of Sorrowful Songs in Bronxville. Ryan earned his Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from The Juilliard School, and is currently a doctoral student at Yale School of Music.

Truro Cathedral has one of the finest organs in the country. Built by Father Willis specifically to fit the acoustic of the building, its range, depth and power are truly awe-inspiring.
