Refined, singing choruses, lovely solo stops, splendid casework and stenciling define the high elegance of 19th century American organs. Sample music on exquisite instruments, large and small, from around the country. Recorded presentation (video link above) followed by a live Q & A reception via Zoom conference using this link.

Tim is a native northwesterner, and graduated from Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma with degrees in piano and organ performance.  He went on to earn a Master of Music in organ from New England Conservatory.

American organs of the Victorian period are one of his passions. After college he apprenticed with George Bozeman in New Hampshire and later worked for Richard Bond in Oregon, both known for their work with  historic organs.  In 1994, the American Institute Of Organbuilders awarded him their Colleague certificate.  He has played for three national conventions of the Organ Historical Society.

Tim is Music Director for St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Seattle, and enjoys spending time bicycling and hiking the mountains of the northwest.
