Organist Jonathan Dimmock is well-known internationally as a recitalist, accompanist, ensemble musician, non-profit founder and writer. A graduate of Oberlin and Yale, he has the unique privilege to have been the only American Organ Scholar of Westminster Abbey; he has also served three American cathedrals: St. John the Divine (New York), St. Mark’s (Minneapolis), and Grace (San Francisco). Jonathan lives in San Francisco, where, for over twelve years, he was Music Director at St. Ignatius Church (the largest Jesuit church in the United States) and where he is currently Principal Organist at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor, Organist for the San Francisco Symphony, Director of Music at Congregation Sherith Israel, Organ Instructor at Sonoma State University, and a regular freelance performer. He is one of the few organists in the world to tour on six continents.
