Todd Fickley

Native Washingtonian, conductor, pianist, harpsichordist, and organist Todd Fickley is the acting artistic director of the Consort. He holds an MA in organ performance from the University of Wales and is a fellow of the AGO. He has performed at the Kennedy Center and across the US, Europe and Israel, and has been featured with the NSO and Washington Ballet. His recordings have been critically praised as “some of the most enthralling Bach organ playing you are likely to hear anywhere by anyone.”
