He is the Principal Organist at the Legion of Honor Museum, Organist for the San Francisco Symphony, and Music Director at both a church and synagogue in San Francisco. A graduate of Oberlin and Yale, he had the unique privilege of being the only American to serve as Organ Scholar of Westminster Abbey under the tutelage of Simon Preston. Continuing his career in the United States, he served three Episcopal cathedrals, including St.John the Divine. He is one of the few organists in the world to tour on six continents and is especially renowned for his interpretations of the music of Bach and Messiaen. He has recorded more than fifty CDs. He has been interviewed and featured on numerous radio and television stations including National Public Radio, Radio France, BBC3, and others. His January 13th program includes music by American composers, some of which he commissioned or arranged. An interesting feature is a brother-sister organ duet featuring Jonathan with sister Jane Cain, Director of Music at Davidson College Presbyterian Church. The concert is free and followed by a meet-the-artist reception. Donations are gratefully received to further the series. For the rest of the concerts in the series, go to www.dcpc.org.
