Robert McCormick is appointed organist and director of music at the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd, Rosemont (Bryn Mawr), Pennsylvania. He will continue to lead the music program in the Anglo-Catholic tradition, expand the all-professional choir to include auditioned volunteers, begin an in-depth chorister program for children, and play the church’s 1977 Austin organ. 

This follows nearly eight years as organist and choirmaster of St. Mark’s Church, Locust Street, Philadelphia, where he led a successful program in the Anglican choral tradition, doubling the number of boy and girl choristers, and oversaw the restoration of the church’s historic 1937 Aeolian-Skinner organ. 

The fourth installment of McCormick’s series in The Diapason, “Spotlight on Improvisation,” was featured in the December 2023 issue, pages 12–14. 

McCormick also has held similar positions at St. Paul’s Church, K Street, Washington, D.C., and the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, New York City. He continues as an adjunct assistant professor of organ at Westminster Choir College and a recitalist/clinician under the management of Phillip Truckenbrod Concert Artists.
