Randall Mullin, a native of Columbus, Georgia, received both Bachelor and Master of Music degrees in Organ (the latter with honors) from the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, where he studied with Arthur Howes and Cherry Rhodes. Other teachers have included Robert Twynham and Harald Rohlig. In 1970, he was appointed Associate Director of Music at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen, Baltimore, where he remained until becoming Organist and Choirmaster of St. David’s Church in 1975. From 1975 until September, 2003, Randall Mullin was Organist and Choirmaster at St. David’s in Baltimore where he worked with a professional mixed choir, boys’ choir and girls’ choir and established a concert series which includes the fifteen organist Baltimore Bach Marathon each February. He is currently a freelance musician living in southern Maine.
Mr. Mullin has performed throughout the country with more recent recitals at Grace Cathedral, San Francisco and Methuen Memorial Music Hall in Methuen, Massachusetts. He has performed with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and numerous times with the Baltimore Choral Arts Society. Randall Mullin has also been a member of the faculty of Royal School of Church Music courses held in New Jersey, North Carolina, and Valley Forge and Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. In 1982 he was invited by the Washington Chapter of the American Guild of Organists to play the “Symphony for Organ and Orchestra” by Aaron Copland with the National Symphony for the National Convention of the American Guild of Organists. This concert, and others featuring Randall Mullin, have been broadcast throughout the country on National Public Radio. In 1996 Mr. Mullin and the choirs of St. David’s Church were performers for the regional convention of the Association of Anglican Musicians held in Baltimore.
More recently, Randall has extended his recognition throughout the world by his presence on the internet. His website www.randallmullin.com
contains over sixty of his recordings and he has nearly thirty high definition videos on YouTube. Because of the video exposure, he has been asked to record videos of the works of several contemporary composers from North America and Europe. He has also written tutorials for the Hauptwerk Virtual Pipe Organ, a computer program that allows organists to play virtual replicas of exceptional pipe organs found throughout the world.
Randall Mullin’s work has been featured on four Compact Discs: a Christmas recording produced by the Baltimore Choral Arts Society; “St. David’s Sings,” a choral and organ disc produced by St. David’s Church, Baltimore; and two choral recordings produced by the Church of the Redeemer in Baltimore.
