Dorothy Papadakos is internationally known as an organist and member of the Paul Winter Consort. Her first published book is THE KINGDOM OF WINTER, an allegory about climate change for youngsters ages 11 to 14, narrated by Sir Windham the North Wind. It is the first installment in a proposed four-book series called THE KINGDOMS OF THE SEASONS.

Ms. Papadakos earned a Masters Degree in Organ Performance at the Juilliard School, and was the first woman to be Cathedral Organist at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York City, a post she held from 1990 to 2003. She is celebrated for her daring and imaginative improvisations and scores for theatre, film, TV and ballet. Her 2005 musical BACCHUS premiered in Wilmington, where she now resides, to rave reviews.
