John Scott, organ

John Scott was born in 1956 in Wakefield, Yorkshire. He made his debut in the 1977 Promenade Concerts in the Royal Albert Hall; he was the youngest organist to appear as a soloist in the Proms. In 1990, he became Organist and Director of Music at St Paul’s Cathedral. There, he was responsible for music marking the 100th birthday of HM The Queen Mother and the Golden Jubilee of HM The Queen, for whom he was asked to compose an anthem. After 26 years at St Paul’s, he took up the post of Organist and Director of Music at St Thomas Church in New York City. As an organist, recital engagements have included venues in the U.S., U.K., Germany, Holland, Denmark, Switzerland, Italy, South Africa, Slovakia, Australia, and New Zealand. John Scott's program will feature Sweelinck, Buxtehude, Scheidt, and Scheidemann. This year, Memorial Church's free organ recitals celebrate the 30th year of the Fisk-Nanney organ.
