Organ Recital at All Saints'

Organ Recital with Clive Driskill-Smith on Friday, Oct. 19, 7:30 p.m.

All are invited to All Saints’ Episcopal Church for an organ recital by Clive Driskill-Smith, the British organist and recording artist who is our new organist and choirmaster.

The recital will take place Friday, October 19 at 7:30 p.m. at the church, located at 5001 Crestline Road in Fort Worth, Texas. There is no admission charge.

Driskill-Smith will play Fantasia in G major by J.S. Bach, Adagio and Final from Symphony No. 3 by Louis Vierne and Noel Rawsthorne’s Hornpipe Humoresque, among other works.

As organist and choirmaster, Driskill-Smith continues the tradition of beautiful Anglican choral and organ music at All Saints’. He was preceded by Frederick Grimes, who retired Sept. 9 after 24 years as the church’s organist and choirmaster.

Clive Driskill-Smith, considered one of the leading organists of his generation, has been heard in recital on three occasions at All Saints’ Episcopal Church.  Critics have praised his “blazing technique” and “unbelievable virtuosity” (American Guild of Organists) and described his performances as "intensely moving" and "truly breathtaking" (Organo Pleno, Melbourne).

The Frederick Grimes Organ Scholarship

Scholarship Fund established in honor of Rick Grimes

Our longtime Organist and Choirmaster, Rick Grimes, retired from All Saints' on Sept. 9.

In lieu of personal gifts and in consultation with Rick, the Church ihas established The Frederick Grimes Organ Scholarship.

The Scholarship will support an organist to work under the Organist and Choirmaster as an apprentice and “second pair of hands” to assist in all aspects of the music ministry at All Saints’ Episcopal Church.  This is something Rick has been dreaming of since he started here in 1994.

Please consider making a donation to this Scholarship in honor of and in thanksgiving for the 24 years of ministry Rick has given to our parish.  The funds will be held in the All Saints’ Episcopal Church Endowment Fund with only the income from the invested corpus being used for the Scholarship.  Notice of donors’ names, but not amounts, will be sent to Rick as they are processed. To donate, please make checks payable to All Saints’ Episcopal Church and indicate The Frederick Grimes Organ Scholarship in the notation line.
