David Hegarty is currently in his 40th year as principal organist of San Francisco’s Castro Theatre. He also plays pre-film concerts at the Stanford Theatre, Palo Alto, and has been playing monthly concerts at the Legion of Honor since 1998. As an avid film music researcher, he specializes in writing and performing transcriptions and arrangements of the music from Hollywood’s Golden Age. David was an Organ Performance major at Loma Linda University (BA), Andrews University (MMus), and the College-Conservatory of Music of the University of Cincinnati (two years of doctoral studies in organ performance). He is a prolific composer/arranger/editor, having served on the staff of Lorenz Publishing Company, during which time he was editor of The Sacred Organ Journal. He is also published with Hal Leonard Publications, Sheet Music Magazine, Broadman Press, and Hegarty Music Press—providing an organ method and orchestral MIDI files for the Allen Organ Company. As a concert artist, David has appeared in such venues as Washington DC’s Kennedy Center, the Crystal Cathedral, San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral, and Davies Symphony Hall.
