Organist and Pianist Sean Jackson, one of Barbados’ most distinguished émigré classical musicians, has performed internationally both as a soloist and accompanist in countries including the United Kingdom, Northern Ireland, Germany, Taiwan, China, Canada, the United States of America and the Caribbean.

A recipient of a National Development Scholarship from the Government of Barbados and a scholarship from the Associated Board of The Royal Schools of Music in recognition of his outstanding performance in their examinations, Jackson left his homeland in 1992 to pursue a Bachelor of Music degree at the Royal College of Music, London. While there he also gained his ARCM in the teaching of Organ.

Jackson began his musical studies at the age of five and by the age of eleven had won his first gold medal in his country's National Independence Festival of Creative Arts. In recognition of his outstanding contribution he was subsequently awarded the National Youth Award from the Barbados Government, and went on to receive numerous prizes and awards both at the undergraduate and graduate level including the Parratt, Walford Davies, and Geoffrey Tankard organ prizes, the Douglas Whittaker Chamber Music Prize all from the Royal College of Music; the A.H. Kuhn Memorial Scholarship, the 1999 William Schumann Prize, and the C.V. Starr Doctoral Fellowship from the Juilliard School. In 2004 Jackson graduated from The Juilliard School, New York, where he received both his Master of Music and Doctorate degrees.

In October, 2000, while still a student at the Juilliard school, Jackson won an organ competition which entitled him to perform Stephen Paulus's Organ Concerto with the Juilliard Symphony at the Alice Tully Hall and was featured again with the Juilliard Symphony at the Lincoln Center in November 2003 with a performance of the Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony. He has performed as guest organist with the New York Youth Symphony in Carnegie Hall, was a featured artist in the International Concert Series at Trinity, Wall Street, and performed a solo concert at The Washington National Cathedral, 2006.

Other highlights of his performance career include a debut performance at the Kimmel Center, Philadelphia, a performance at the Frank Collymore Hall, Barbados in celebration of the Central Bank’s thirty-fifth anniversary, a performance at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music with violinist Stephen Clapp, and solo organ recitals in the Bahamas. He has recently performed with the Rodney Mack Philadelphia Big Brass, accompanied the Fairfield County Chorale with the Duruflé Requiem and collaborated with acclaimed organ improvisateur Justin Bischof in organ duo recitals in Barbados and the United States.

Jackson spent six years as Assistant Organist at Trinity Episcopal Church, Wall Street, New York, where he recorded with the Trinity Choir on the Naxos label. He continued recording while serving as Organist and Director of Music in Connecticut churches. These albums include his debut CD, Sean Jackson Plays Organ Favorites: Volume I, a second solo CD Organ Favorites: Volume 2, The Way, an album of vocal arias, spirituals and classics with soprano Meghan Joynt, as well as It Is Well With My Soul, a CD of spirituals and short violin works with Dean Emeritus of the Juilliard School, violinist Stephen Clapp, and soprano Amy Clapp Dye.
