Diane Bish is the most visible, influential, and recorded concert organist of our time.  She displays dazzling virtuosity and unique showmanship the world over to international acclaim.  Her organ performances are hailed as “stunning, virtuoso, fiery, and astonishing.”

With over 500 episodes, her travelogue/music series, The Joy of Music, is broadcast worldwide to over 300 million viewers weekly including our own Catholic Network, EWTN.  The Joy of Music combines exhilarating organ and ensemble performances with informative, inspirational narrative and exciting world travel.  Additionally, she has made over 30 recordings of great organ masterpieces, original works, and hymn arrangements.  This tremendous outreach to the general public on behalf of the organ and Diane Bish’s longevity as a leading recitalist distinguish her in the world of music.

Miss Bish was awarded the National Citation by the National Federation of Music Clubs of America. Considered to be the Federation's highest honor, Diane Bish shares this rare distinction with such luminaries as Leonard Bernstein, Eugene Ormandy, Van Cliburn, Robert Shaw, Irving Berlin and Fred Waring in receiving this award "for distinguished service to the musical, artistic, and cultural life of the nation."

This concert is being proudly underwritten by the Allen Organ Company and Allen Organ Chicago, the manufacturer and local dealer of the new organ.
