Clark is one of the most highly acclaimed theater organists in America. He has concertized in the United States, Canada, Australia and England, and done extensive silent movie accompaniment, including the Chautauqua Institution in New York, the Packard Foundation's Stanford Theatre, UCLA, and the Fox Theatre for the Atlanta premier of the restored "Metropolis." Along with a busy concert schedule, Clark runs his own pipe organ business and is heavily in demand as a tonal consultant and finisher of both theatre and classical pipe organs. He has received both the Technician of the Year and Organist of the Year awards from the American Theatre Organ Society, the only person to have done so, and his time now is nearly equally divided between concert and technical work.
Clark will accompany the classic 1920 silent horror film, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, starring John Barrymore. Tame by today’s standards, this film frightened audiences world- wide in 1920, largely due to Barrymore’s theatrical training being brought to the big screen.
