British organist Clive Driskill-Smith has taken the classical music world by storm, enthralling audiences from Beijing to Boston to Budapest with his extraordinary playing and fearless programming. Critics have praised his "blazing technique and unbelievable virtuosity" (Chiff Chat, American Guild of Organists) and described his performances as "intensely moving and truly breathtaking" (Organo Pleno, Australia).

Mr. Driskill-Smith is the Organist and Choirmaster at All Saints' Episcopal Church in Fort Worth, Texas, a post that he combines with an international concert career. His solo recitals, and duo performances with Grammy Award-winning percussionist Joseph Gramley, bring audiences to their feet across the world.

Mr. Driskill-Smith was educated at Eton College and Oxford University. He studied the organ with David Sanger, and won the Calgary International Organ Competition in 2002. Before moving to Texas, he was the organist at Christ Church Cathedral in Oxford, a Trustee of the Royal College of Organists, and Professor of Organ at the Royal Academy of Music in London.
