Our Tonal Director

Sebastian M. Glück earned his AB in Architecture and MS in Historic Preservation from Columbia University's School of Architecture in New York City. He studied organ with Jack Ossewaarde at Saint Bartholomew's Church in New York City before entering The Juilliard School to study organ with Messiaen protégé Jon Gillock, who remained his teacher for seventeen years. Founding conductor of the Columbia University Brass Choir and Musical Director and baroque recorder soloist for The Denz Chamber Players from 197985, he remains an active organ recitalist.

In 1997, he persuaded the New York Landmarks Conservancy's Sacred Sites Program to recognize pipe organs as significant works of art worthy of preservation, and has been a member of the Organ Historical Society for nearly three decades. He currently serves as their National Councilor for Research and Publications, and sits on the society's Historic Organs Citations Committee and Restoration Guidelines Committee.

A lecturer on organ design and conservation, Mr. Glück holds the Colleague's Certificate from the American Institute of Organbuilders, and in 2001 was appointed Editor of the Journal of American Organbuilding. He writes regularly about organbuilding, musicology, and history for The American Organist.

Mr. Glück personally oversees the design, scaling, voicing, and tonal finishing of each of our pipe organs, and consults with our clients on issues of acoustics, liturgical movement, and historic compatibility. He applies his background in architecture and historic preservation to make the visual elements of each instrument a stylistic match to the room in which it sings.
