Dorothy first played organ with the Paul Winter Consort in 1984. In 1987 she began playing the Consort’s annual Winter Solstice, St. Francis Day and Carnival celebrations at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in NYC. In 1995, Paul Winter & Dorothy created Summer Solstice as a fund raising tool for the Cathedral’s Great Organ Restoration Fund. What started out as a single 4AM sunrise concert has evolved into what Paul calls “our most profound event of the year,” spawning some of the Consort’s most acclaimed recordings.
As a duo, Paul & Dorothy have played many Cathedral Christmas Eve’s and Easter mornings; sax & organ concerts for Earth Day at Washington’s National Cathedral, for Vietnamese Zen Buddhist Monk Thich Nat Hanh with Judy Collins at Riverside Church; and for the 60th commemoration of the atomic bombings at the Memorial Cathedral for World Peace in Hiroshima, Japan. Paul & Dorothy were also featured artists on the Esplanade Theatre’s Pedals and Pipes Concert Series in Singapore.
At Misono Hall in Shiga, Japan Dorothy performs on the spectacular, world famous Royal Five Organ which began life as a 1974 Rodgers touring organ designed & played by Virgil Fox. After brief service at Garden Grove’s Crystal Cathedral it found a new home in 1985 in Shinji Shumekai’s monumental Founders Hall. A 2004 refurbishment by Rodgers has made the Royal Five the "emperor" of digital organs.
