Groom Organ Recital: Robert McCormick

Described by Choir & Organ as “indomitable and immensely gifted” and by The Macon Telegraph as “an artist of rare sensitivity and passion”, Robert McCormick is heralded as one of the finest concert and church musicians of this era and is widely known for his unique abilities in organ improvisation. He has been featured in solo appearances throughout the country in recitals and workshops for numerous American Guild of Organists chapters, the Association of Anglican Musicians, the Royal School of Church Music in America, and for Westminster Choir College. His recording from St. Paul’s, K Street, We Sing of God, states that “[McCormick] shines at the organ.”Mr. McCormick is the newly-appointed Organist and Director of Music at Church of the Good Shepherd, Rosemont, Pennsylvania. He was Organist and Choirmaster of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Philadelphia from 2016-2023. This follows eight years as Director of Music at St. Paul’s Parish, K Street, Washington, D.C., and seven years as Organist and Music Director at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, New York. He is a graduate of the Westminster Choir College. His teachers include McNeil Robinson and Robert Carwithen. Mr. Carwithen was the major donor for our new Taylor & Boody Organ at the Wheaton College Armerding Hall, and before his passing last year, often spoke of Mr. McCormick as one of his best students.
