Described by Choir & Organ as “indomitable and immensely gifted” and by The Macon Telegraph as “an artist of rare sensitivity and passion”, organist Robert McCormick is widely heralded by his colleagues as one of the finest concert and church musicians of this era. Known for his creative and unique abilities in organ improvisation, Mr. McCormick was named a semi-finalist in the 2005 St. Albans International Organ Festival Improvisation Competition. Concert appearances across the United States include the Summer Organ Festival at the Riverside Church (New York), the Pittsburgh Organ Artists Series, the East Texas Organ Festival, Basically Bach Festival at St. Peter’s Lutheran (New York), the Great Organists series at St. John’s Cathedral in Albuquerque (New Mexico), the Atlanta Summer Organ Festival, a concerto performance with the Macon (Georgia) Symphony Orchestra, and recitals and workshops for numerous American Guild of Organists chapters. He has been a featured artist and clinician at numerous conventions and conferences of the AGO, the Association of Anglican Musicians, and the Royal School of Church Music in America, playing recitals and services, and leading workshops in choir training, service playing, and organ improvisation. As a composer, his choral works are published by Encore (UK) and Selah, and have been performed throughout the U.S and in Europe.
The concerts and receptions are underwritten by Ellen Van Looy Reed ’53.
Concerts will be held in Thomson Hall’s Alumnae Chapel at Wilson College.
