Introduction

Regarded as one of today’s finest concert organists in the US and around the world, Todd Wilson serves as head of the Organ Department at CIM. He is also curator of the E.M. Skinner pipe organ in Severance Hall, director of music at Cleveland’s Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, and house organist at the Blackstone Residence where CIM organ students perform frequently. He has been a featured performer at five national conventions of The American Guild of Organists. A life-long interest in improvisation has led to his popular improvised accompaniments to classic silent films.
