  • Emily Dawn Amos is a young organist whose passion for music has taken her across the nation and beyond. She started studying organ at age eight, and a year later was the youngest person ever admitted into the Pipe Organ Encounters program of the American Guild of Organists (AGO). Since then, she has attended a total of 20 summer intensives, including the Curtis-Wanamaker Organ Institute, Oberlin Organ Academy, Eastman Summer Organ Academy, Baylor Organ Summer Institute, and Jacobs School of Music Organ Academy. Ms. Amos currently works at Church of the Good Shepherd in Rosemont, Pa. and is an assistant organist at the Wanamaker Grand Court at Macy’s. Previous positions include assistant organist at both St. Rita Catholic Church in Alexandria, La. and St. Francis Catholic Church in Traverse City, Mich.; and organ scholar at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Chestnut Hill, Pa. She has participated in masterclasses with professors such as James David Christie, Daniel Roth, Alan Morrison, and Johann Vexo. In her travels, Ms. Amos has had the opportunity to play organs such as those at Longwood Gardens, St. Bartholomew’s and St. Patrick’s in New York, King’s Chapel in Boston, and Verizon Hall in Philadelphia. Ms. Amos won the 2015 and 2016 Young Artists Competition on NPR (Red River Radio). She also won third place, audience prize, and the hymn prize at the 2018 Albert Schweitzer Organ Festival and second place at the AGO Quimby Regional Competition (Grand Rapids Chapter). Ms. Amos studied with Mr. Scott Dettra as her primary organ teacher from 2015 to 2017, attended the Interlochen Arts Academy from 2017 to 2019, and is currently attending the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, where she studies with Alan Morrison.
