Album Notes
Organist and pianist Dr. Sean Jackson is a Doctoral graduate of The Juilliard School , New York, where he also received his Master of Music degree in 1999.

A recipient of a National Development Scholarship from the Government of Barbados and a scholarship from the Associated Board of The Royal Schools of Music in recognition of his outstanding performance in their examinations, Dr. Jackson left his homeland in 1992 to pursue a Bachelor of Music degree at the Royal College of Music, London. While there he also gained his ARCM in the teaching of Organ.

Dr. Jackson began his musical studies at the age of five and by the age of eleven had won his first gold medal in his country's National Independence Festival of Creative Arts. In recognition of his outstanding contribution he was subsequently awarded the National Youth Award from the Barbados government, and went on to receive numerous prizes and awards both at the undergraduate and graduate level including the Parratt, Walford Davies, and Geoffrey Tankard organ prizes, the Douglas Whittaker Chamber Music Prize all from the Royal College of Music; the A.H. Kuhn Memorial Scholarship, the 1999 William Schumann Prize, and the C.V. Starr Doctoral Fellowship from the Juilliard School.

In October, 2000, while still a student, Dr. Jackson won an organ competition at The Juilliard School which entitled him to perform Stephen Paulus's Organ Concerto with the Juilliard Symphony at the Alice Tully Hall and was featured again with the Juilliard Symphony at the Lincoln Center in November 2003 with a performance of the Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony. Other notable appearances include a performance as guest organist with the New York Youth Symphony in Carnegie Hall, appearance as a featured artist in the International Concert Series at Trinity, Wall Street, and a solo performance at The Washington National Cathedral, 2006. Highlights of his 2007-2008 performances included a debut performance at the Kimmel Center, Philadelphia, a performance at the Frank Collymore Hall, Barbados in celebration of the Central Bank’s thirty-fifth anniversary, a performance at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music with violinist Stephen Clapp, and a solo organ recital in the Bahamas.

Dr. Jackson spent six years as Assistant Organist at Trinity Episcopal Church, Wall Street, New York, where he recorded with the Trinity Choir on the Naxos label.
