Hampson Sisler, organist and composer, is one of the most prolific composers today with over 100 works to his credit. His works were written for organ, chorus, concert band, chamber and symphony orchestra.
At 17 years old, Hampson was the youngest person ever awarded the American Guild of Organists’ coveted Fellowship status and has had performances of his works the world over.
Today, in addition to being a composer, Sisler maintains a dual career as an organist and choral director. He has served seventeen churches, most notably Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church in Brooklyn, where Abraham Lincoln was an occasional attendee, and Central Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, where Charles Ives served in the same position in the early 1900s.
Currently, Hampson Sisler is the music director at the historic St. James Episcopal Church in Elmhurst, New York. His recent compositions have been performed in Bulgaria, Israel, Czech Republic, Russia and the United States. The majority of his orchestral works have been recorded on the MSR Classics label. Mr. Sisler is presented world-wide by BV Artists International.
