Eminent US organist dies of rare cancermain
Weeks after the shocking and sudden death of John Scott, Organist and Director of Music at St Thomas Church on Fifth Avenue, we mourn his Washington colleague, Ben Hutto, director of music at St. John’s Lafayette Square and director of performing arts at the St. Albans School for Boys and the National Cathedral School for Girls.
Ben was 67 and had been diagnosed with a rare cancer of the gallbladder. His death was announced by the Association of Anglican Musicians.
Originally from Charleston, Ben received the call to Washington in 1999.
