About the organists

Jonathan Dimmock is a recitalist, accompanist, ensemble musician, recording artist, and writer. A graduate of Oberlin and Yale, he was the first American to hold the prestigious position of organ scholar of Westminster Abbey. He has also served three American cathedrals: St. John the Divine in New York City, St. Mark’s in Minneapolis, and Grace in San Francisco. Jonathan lives in San Francisco where he is principal organist at the Legion of Honor, organist for the San Francisco Symphony, director of music at Congregation Sherith Israel, and a freelance performer. He is cofounder of the highly acclaimed American Bach Soloists, founding director of Artists’ Vocal Ensemble, and founder and executive director of the Resonance Project. He is one of the few organists in the world to tour on six continents. He has recorded more than 50 CDs including a Grammy winner with the San Francisco Symphony.

David Hegarty is currently in his 45th year as principal organist of San Francisco’s Castro Theatre. He also plays pre-film concerts at the Stanford Theatre, Palo Alto, and has been playing monthly concerts at the Legion of Honor since 1998. As an avid film music researcher, he specializes in writing and performing transcriptions and arrangements of the music from Hollywood’s Golden Age. David studied organ performance at Loma Linda University (BA), Andrews University (MMus), and the College-Conservatory of Music of the University of Cincinnati (two years of doctoral studies). He is a prolific composer, arranger, and editor, and served on the staff of Lorenz Publishing Company, during which time he was editor of The Sacred Organ Journal. He is also published with Hal Leonard Publications, Sheet Music Magazine, Broadman Press, and Hegarty Music Press. As a concert artist, David has appeared in such venues as Washington DC’s Kennedy Center, the Crystal Cathedral, San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral, and Davies Symphony Hall.
