American concert organist Wyatt Smith, hailed as playing with “nuance, polish, and personality” (Michael Barone, APM Pipedreams), maintains a very active concert schedule throughout the United States and England.  Indeed, over the last seven years he has performed in twenty-eight states, most notably at St. Thomas Church (New York), St. George’s, Hanover Square (London), King’s Chapel and Trinity Church–Copley Square (Boston), Yale University (New Haven), the National City Christian Church (Washington DC), the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels (Los Angeles), and St. Mark Episcopal Cathedral (Seattle),

Wyatt appeared at the 2012 AGO National Convention in Nashville, Tennessee, as a “Rising Star,” having won the AGO/Quimby Regional Competition for Young Organists–Region VI in 2011. His performances have been heard on several episodes of American Public Media’s Pipedreams. His achievements in performance were recently recognized when he was named as a member of the “Class of 2016” by The Diapason‘s program “20-under-30”, which recognizes young leaders in the fields of organ, harpsichord, carillon, and church music.
