Praised for his "exquisite playing" (Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians) Ross Wood became associate organist at All Saints, Ashmont, in 2018. He previously served in associate positions at Church of the Advent (2001-2016) and Trinity Church, Copley Square (1985-2001).
While an undergraduate at Southern Methodist University, studying with Robert Anderson, he was a finalist in the national competition sponsored by the American Guild of Organists. He earned Master's and D.M.A. degrees from Eastman School of Music in the studio of Russell Saunders. For twenty-three years he served as a librarian at Wellesley College.
Among Mr. Wood’s recital appearances are New York’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral, St. Thomas Church, Church of St. Mary the Virgin, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, and Trinity Church, Wall Street. In France he has appeared at Notre-Dame de Paris on three occasions and in festivals at Bourges and Carcassonne. Equally appreciated as an accompanist, his four recordings with the Trinity Choir won critical acclaim. On tour he accompanied the Trinity Choir at Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and the cathedrals of Ely and Chichester. As a freelancer he has performed in the Boston Symphony Orchestra under Helmuth Rilling and James Levine, and with the Boston Pops under Keith Lockhart.
