Erik Meyer New Cathedral Organist

The Cathedral is pleased to announce that Erik Meyer will be joining us as our new Cathedral Organist beginning Sunday, September 1, 2024.

Erik comes to the Cathedral having served at Abington Presbyterian Church since 2021 following nine years at St. Martin-in-the-Fields Episcopal Church, Philadelphia, and seven years at Luther Memorial Church in Erie, PA. He looks forward to returning to the Anglican tradition!

Erik began studying the organ with J. Bert Carlson, continuing later with Donald Sutherland at Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University. He has won numerous organ competitions and performed hundreds of concerts throughout the US and Europe, both solo as well as part of the AE Meyer flute & organ duo.

Erik is also a composer who has won awards from the AGO, ALCM, PAM, and others. (He is the composer of the new Johns Hopkins University school song!) He also serves as keyboardist and composer-in-residence for Elevate Vocal Arts, adjunct faculty at Temple University, and is active in Philadelphia area music scenes. He lives in Abington with his wife and two teenage children.

We will be honoring the retirement of our current Cathedral Organist Wesley Parrott with a fond farewell at our Sunday morning service on August 4. Wesley’s six years at the Cathedral not only encompassed the special challenges of the pandemic, but the completion of our major organ project. Thank you, Wesley!

Please join us in welcoming Erik Meyer to the Cathedral!
