Paul Jacobs is a citizen of the world on the organ. He has performed on five continents and in all 50 US states. As a 23-year-old, he played Bach’s complete works in an 18-hour concert marathon – but his gigantic repertoire includes old as well as new music. He is the only organist to have received a Grammy Award (in 2011 for a Messiaen album). He has taught at New York’s renowned Juillard School since 2003, serving as head of the organ department since 2004. In 2017, he received an honorary doctorate from Washington and Jefferson College. In 2021, the American Guild of Organists named him “International Performer of the Year”.
