Christopher M. Wicks: Biography, Catalogue, Publications

Christopher M. Wicks holds a MM in composition from the University of Montreal, and a MM in organ from the University of Oregon.  He is a Fellow of the American Guild of Organists, which is the highest professional certification offered by that organization, and studied for two years as an undergraduate at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York.  He finished his BA in Music at Marylhurst University near Portland.  The image on the website is an homage to the ‘White Rose’ group of World War II-era Munich, an association of German Gentiles who were killed for their anti-Nazi activism.  Besides composing and playing the organ, Christopher loves to cook and to translate French poetry.  He can be reached via email at CHRISTOPHERMW at WAVECABLE dot COM.
