Thomas Robert Ogden, Organist

Thomas Robert Ogden was born in 1957 and was the only son of Thomas Joseph and Elizabeth Ann (Fullerton) Ogden. I met him a few times as a child when our grandmothers would visit each other.

Thomas is a gifted musician. If my memories are reliable, as a young man, sometime between 1978 and 1983, he was an organist at the Vatican in Rome. During this period he traveled to the U.S. to give a series of concerts and invited me to a private concert for a group of music lovers at a home in Maryland in the Catoctin mountains near the Pennsylvania border. The owners had installed a lovely old pipe organ in their living room, which they had purchased when an old theater was demolished.
