The Aeolian-Skinner Legacy Presents: Music Festival


Honoring Clarence Dickinson, Founder of the American Guild of Organists, Riverside Church in New York City on April 27, 1958.

Twenty-three choirs, three conductors, and a clutch of organists and soloists came together to honor Clarence Dickinson. Today, the name of participant Virgil Fox still commands attention, but the veneration with which Dickinson and his wife were then honored was notable. The event celebrates her life, his 85th- birthday and his 50 years’ service as organist/choirmaster of the Brick Presbyterian Church in New York City. ENJOY!
