American composer, organist and choral conductor, HAMPSON SISLER, has more than 100 works to his credit, including pieces for organ, chorus, concert band, chamber and symphony orchestra. Sisler, who, at the age of seventeen, was the youngest person ever to be awarded the American Guild of Organists’ coveted Fellowship status, has had performances of his works given by Samuel Wong of the Honolulu and Hong Kong Symphony Orchestras, Marlon Daniel of the Ensemble du Monde and Prague Symphonietta Chamber Orchestras, Volodymyr Sirenko, Principal Conductor of The National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine and by Arkady Leytush. Sisler’s works have been performed in cities all over the world,

In New York, a partial premiere of his 14-movement work for large orchestra and organ, Milestones, took place at Alice Tully Hall under the baton of Leytush with Frank Morana at the organ. Solo and duo cantatas, commissioned by Daniel, have been premiered at Merkin Hall. As an organ recitalist, Sisler has given performances in and around New York City, including at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Beginning in 1945, Sisler has been serving as Music Director at more than a dozen churches in the greater New York area, including the Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church in Brooklyn and Metropolitan-Duane United Methodist Church in Manhattan, where he held the post for more than sixteen years. He is currently Music Director at Central Presbyterian Church, NYC—a post held by Charles Ives more than 100 years ago—and is also the official organist for the Doctors’ Orchestral Society of New York.
