Dale Nickell had his first encounter with the organ at the Halloween Organ Extravaganza at CSU, the very first time he had seen and heard a pipe organ in person.
In the few years since then, he has taken up its study with a love for sacred music and a fascination with the instrument while showing extraordinary musical growth and potential. Dale has received prestigious musical awards and scholarships such as the Wendel Diebel Music Performance Award.
He serves as the organist at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, Fort Collins and as the assistant organist at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Fort Collins. He is a senior organ performance major at Colorado State University under the instruction of Dr. Joel Bacon. He also studies piano with Dr. Janet Landreth.
