JARED JACOBSEN was the fifth in the unbroken chain of Civic Organists of the City of San Diego, playing weekly concerts on the Spreckels Organ from 1978 through 1985. (Dr. Carol Williams, our incumbent, is the seventh.) Currently he serves as Director of Music for First Lutheran Church in downtown San Diego and is a member of the performing arts faculty of the Bishop’s School in La Jolla. During the summers he is Organist and Coordinator of Worship and Sacred Music for the historic Chautauqua Institution in New York State, where he presides over the 105-year-old Massey Memorial Organ of four manuals and ninety-three ranks, located in the six-thousand-seat, open-air wooden Amphitheater which is the centerpiece of Chautauqua’s programming.
