Kimberly Marshall is known worldwide for her compelling programs and presentations of organ music. She is an accomplished teacher, having held teaching positions at Stanford University and the Royal Academy of Music, London. Winner of the Saint Albans International Organ Playing Competition in 1985, Dr. Marshall has been a recitalist, workshop leader, and adjudicator at seven National Conventions of the American Guild of Organists.

From 1996-2000, she served as a project leader for the Göteborg Organ Research Center (GOArt), performing during the summer organ academies in 1996, 1998, and 2000, when the North German Baroque organ at Örgryte New Church was inaugurated.

Acclaimed as a specialist in early music, Kimberly Marshall has performed on many of the most significant historical organs in Europe. She is also a noted authority on contemporary organ repertoire, especially the music of György Ligeti. Her CDs and videos display the breadth of her interests, from Arnolt Schlick and 16th-century Italian composers to Chen Yi’s Dunhuang Fantasy.
