Portrait Gallery
Richard Elliott was born in Baltimore, Maryland, and is a convert to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Before his baptism, he had studied organ at the Peabody Conservatory and the Catholic University of America. He earned his bachelor of music degree from the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia and his master's and doctoral degrees from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York.
He became an assistant professor of organ at Brigham Young University. He was appointed as Tabernacle organist in 1991. He plays the 11,623 pipe organ in the Tabernacle and the 7,667 wind-powered pipes of the Conference Center organ. He is also a former assistant organist for Philadelphia's famed Wanamaker organ.
Elliott loved music as a child and loved to listen to his mother play the piano. As a teenager, he played the organ in a rock band, which included flaming speakers, smoke machines, and flash pots that caused the group to be blacklisted because of the fire hazard. He learned to love gospel music at the church he attended with his family. His background brought a unique voice to his job with the choir.
In 2009, the tendon of his left bicep ruptured and he had two options: leave it to heal and regain mobility, which would lessen the strength in his arm, or undergo surgery to repair it, which might cause nerve damage. He chose surgery and while recovering, he focused on practicing on the organ's pedal keyboard. That effort has led him to be especially skilled on the pedal keyboard and he often uses his skill in organ solos.

gave the first major performance of an Elmore work, his tone poem 'Valley Forge-1777'.
In 1955 Elmore was invited to become the organist-choir master of Central Moravian Church in Bethlehem, PA (1955-1968). The impact of the great Moravian music tradition on Elmore's creative work was immense.

Robert Elomre died suddenly on September 22nd 1985.
