HARTFORD – Noted international organist Jonathan Dimmock will present “Paris: Between the Wars,” an organ recital, at the Cathedral of St. Joseph at 7 p.m. Feb. 6.

The program, which is part of the cathedral’s Sacred Sounds Concert Series, consists of works by Weitz, Alain, Widor, Messiaen and Duruflé.

Mr. Dimmock is the organist for the San Francisco Symphony and is the organist and choir director for Congregation Sherith Israel. He is well-known internationally as a recitalist, choral conductor, accompanist, continuo player, ensemble musician, writer and church organist.

His previous musical posts have included Westminster Abbey and three American cathedrals: New York’s St. John the Divine, St. Mark’s in Minneapolis and Grace Cathedral in San Francisco.

The Sacred Sounds Concert Series at the cathedral presents 14 full-scale concerts annually to the city of Hartford, making it one of the foremost music series in the region. Headed by archdiocesan music director Dr. Ezequiel Menéndez, it will feature the New Haven Symphony Orchestra, Connecticut Virtuosi and American Brass Quintet as guest performers this season, in addition to the cathedral’s own choirs and orchestra.
