George Baker (1885 - 1976)

A native of Dallas, George Baker created an early sensation in the organ world by winning the American Guild of Organists National Competition in Organ Playing in 1970 and by his subsequent featured recital for that organization’s national convention two years later. He went on to study organ and improvisation in Paris and to record, and returned to America to teach organ and then to enter medical school. Some thirty years later he has returned to music as a performer, improviser, composer and teacher. His training as an organist was with some of the finest organ teachers of the twentieth century. He obtained his Bachelor’s degree from Southern Methodist University under Robert Anderson, and studied in Paris with Marie-Claire Alain, Pierre Cochereau, Jean Langlais and André Marchal. During his time in France, he earned the Prix de Virtuosité with Mention Maximum from the Schola Cantorum, under Langlais. Returning to the United States, he took his doctorate in music at the University of Michigan and then taught at the Catholic University in Washington D.C. before deciding to become a medical doctor. Although working in medicine, he never ceased performing, composing and recording.
