Born October 15, 1919, in McPherson, Kansas, Gordon Young is recognized as one of this country's most brilliant organists. He is also a prolific and talented composer of both organ and choral works. A number of his church anthems have become standard repertoire fare, and his name is known and respected wherever fine church music is admired.
His undergraduate degree in music was earned at Southwestern College, Winfield, Kansas. Following that he was a scholarship pupil at Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and received his Doctor of Sacred Music from Southwestern in 1964. A member of ASCAP, he has received 18 consecutive annual awards for his contributions to serious literature. His published works now total over 800.
Most of his career he has also served as an educator, choirmaster/organist and, when time permits, is in great demand as a concert recitalist.
