Welcome to my website!!!! Here is a little bit of information about me.
John Cannon began his keyboard career with a childhood broken arm. Furthering his passion for organ, he attended Loomis Chaffee preparatory school in Connecticut in 1993, there winning the junior and senior prizes in music. Then at Colorado State University, in Fort Collins, Colorado, Cannon completed his undergraduate and graduate degree in organ performance.
From 2003-2007, Cannon was the Assistant University Organist for the University of the South, playing services at the School of Theology and the University Service at All Saints. Cannon travelled to England twice with the University Choir, once in 2005 to Wells Cathedral, and once in 2007 to York Minster. He was the only assistant organist in the history of the University of the South to serve four years and to accompany the University Choir on tour in England twice.
Cannon is currently the organist/choirmaster at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Estes Park, Colorado. In the summer of 2009, Cannon competed in the Luxembourg organ competition, Organs without Borders. Cannon has travelled around the United States playing recitals in many churches including the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in NYC , the Cathedral of our Lady of Angles in Los Angeles, First Congregational Church in Los Angeles, the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. and St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. On November 5, 2010, Cannon premiered an original composition by David Briggs based on the hymn tune Lobe den Herren, o meine Seele at the Cathedral of St. John, Jacksonville, Florida. Cannon was a semifinalist at the Rodgers Organ Competition in 2011.
