MGS presents Jonathan Dimmock, organ

Jonathan Dimmock is recognized internationally as a concert artist with a probing intellect, warm stage presence, and love of communicating.  An innovative programmer, he plays weekly at the Legion of Honor Museum where he is the Principal Organist. He is also the Organist for the San Francisco Symphony and is in constant demand as an organ accompanist. Touring several times each year, he is one of the few organists in the world to perform on six continents. From St. Peter’s in Rome to Notre Dame in Paris, and from Carnegie Hall to the Cultural Center in Hong Kong, Jonathan creates programs unique to each venue, always following a relevant theme to help engage his listeners.

Jonathan is also responsible for the creation of The Resonance Project – using live music to transform conflict and find common ground. This project (www.Music-Resonance.org) has led him to interview some of the greatest musicians in the world, all of whom share his excitement about the interface between music and neuroscience. The project has garnered attention from the United Nations, the U.S. Dept. of State, and President Obama. Jonathan is deeply committed to sharing the transformative power of music with the whole world.
