Organist, Jonathan Dimmock (www.JonathanDimmock.com) is well-known internationally as a concert soloist of exceptional merit. He is the Principal Organist at the Legion of Honor Museum, Organist for the San Francisco Symphony, and Music Director at both a church and synagogue in San Francisco. A graduate of Oberlin and Yale, he had the unique privilege of being the only American to serve as Organ Scholar of Westminster Abbey under the tutelage of Simon Preston. Continuing his career in the United States, he served three Episcopal 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 bases his extensive freelance career. He is one of the few organists in the world to tour on six continents and is especially renowned for his interpretations of the music of Bach and Messiaen.

THE ORGAN TASK FORCE
The Organ Task Force of CUCC was formed in support of the incredible Glatter-Goetz/Rosales Organ in our Sanctuary. The Task Force organizes many annual fundraisers to support the maintenance of this instrument as well as a yearly Organ Concert Series. This 2017-2018 season marks the 20th anniversary of the organ!

The newly formed CUCC Artist's Collective works with our congregation and surrounding organizations to support local artists and provide a venue to display art within our community. We are lucky to have many pieces of art on our campus that were created by such influential artists as Millard Sheets and Burt Johnson.
