David Baskeyfield is appointed to the faculty of the Sacred Music Institute of America, Columbus, Ohio, where he will teach service playing, organ repertoire, and improvisation. The Sacred Music Institute of America was developed by Jason Keefer, director and assistant professor of sacred music at the Pontifical College Josephinum, Columbus, in response to a need for organ and vocal training among church musicians who may not have chosen to pursue a conservatory course of study. The institute also teaches Catholic sacred music documents and understanding of resources that can aid full- and part-time music directors in implementing a quality program.
Baskeyfield brings to the Institute his experience both as a church musician and performer. He has been awarded several first prizes in international organ competitions, as well as the American Guild of Organists National Competition in Organ Improvisation, all with audience prizes. He has two commercial recordings to his credit and maintains a schedule as a concert organist playing repertoire, improvising, and accompanying silent films. He is represented in North America by Karen McFarlane Artists, Inc.
