Organist Daryl Robinson, SoCal Debut

Oct 30, 2012

Praised for his “innovative programming, impeccable technique, imaginative organ registrations, and unique depth of interpretative skill,” Daryl Robinson won the First Prize and the Audience Prize at the 2012 American Guild of Organists National Young Artists Competition in Organ Performance (NYACOP).

“We’ve always known that Daryl was a special talent,” said Betsy Cook Weber, director of University of Houston‘s Moores Concert Chorale. “He’s a supremely gifted organist in addition to being a truly nice guy. It is wonderful, although not at all surprising, that he has won the most important organ competition in the nation.” (

Robinson’s Southern California debut will be this Saturday at Pasadena Presbyterian Church, playing on their 1961 Aeolian-Skinner organ.
