Organ & Orchestra: Stephen Simon, David Enlow
Organ concertos of Poulenc, Haydn, Handel and more!

For 26 years, Stephen Simon was the Music Director and Conductor of the Washington Chamber Symphony in D.C., the resident chamber orchestra at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC.  As the Music Director of the Handel Festival of New York at Carnegie Hall (1971-74), he created modern performing editions of little-known Handel works and conducted many of their American premieres, including Alexander Balus; Sosarme; and Aci, Galatea, e Polifemo.  When he was appointed Music Director of the Handel Festival at the Kennedy Center (1976-88), Simon continued his work with Handel, recording the operas Ariodante and Orlando and the oratorios Judas Maccabaeus and highlights from Athalia for RCA Victor.  His recording of Handel's Solomon won a Grammy nomination for best choral recoding.  For many years, he was a guest conductor at the Handel Festival in Halle, Germany, where he led the Halle Philharmonic Orchestra.  Simon also recorded The Complete Mozart Piano Concertos  with Mme. Lili Kraus for CBS/SONY and the prize-winning Beethoven Piano Concerti  with soloist Anthony Newman as the soloist for the Newport Classics label.  He also recorded Handel's Oboe Concerti with Phyllis Lanini and Tartini Violin Concerti with Jody Gatwood and the Washington Chamber Symphony for Musical Heritage.

David Enlow is widely known as a concert organist of great accomplishment and distinction, both in his native Canada and his adopted homeland the United States.  

He is Organist and Choir Master of the church of the Resurrection in New York City where he directs a professional choir. He is a member of the organ faculty of The Juilliard School in New York and the founding director of Cappella New York, a semi-professional choral society now in its fifth season.

Mr. Enlow holds both an undergraduate and a Master's degree from The Juilliard School where he studied with John Weaver and Paul Jacobs. He also studied at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and with John Tuttle in Toronto.  

He is a Fellow of the American Guild of Organists, where he won the S. Lewis Elmer prize, and an Associate of the Royal Canadian College of Organists, where he won the Barker Prize. David Enlow has won several national performance competition first prizes including those of the Arthur Poister Competition and the Albert Schweitzer Organ Festival USA.  

His choir at the Church of the Resurrection performs over fifty mass settings each season, often with orchestra. While in Philadelphia he was Sub-Organist of St. Clement's Church, and an assistant at the famous Wanamaker Grand Court Organ, the world's largest playing musical instrument.
