Remembering Robert Clark

Robert Clark Was Instrumental in ASU’s Organ Program

You may remember that Robert (Bob) Clark died about a year ago. A group of his students has organized an event to honor him. He was a world-class teacher at the University of Michigan and at Arizona State. See below for a photo of their beautiful organ. Please leave your memories below in the comments.

Clark passed away on Aug. 23, 2017 at the age of 85. As a part of the Organ Series at ASU, a group of Clark’s former students will be participating in an event to honor the organist.  Following a 14-year career at University of Michigan, Clark joined the School of Music faculty at ASU where he played a pivotal role in the development of the organ department and its facilities.

Kimberly Marshall, current professor of organ and Clark’s successor, said Clark’s impact on the organ program has attracted many organists to the university, including herself.
