Virgil Keel Fox (May 3, 1912?October 25, 1980) was an American organist, known especially for his flamboyant "Heavy Organ" concerts of the music of Bach. These events appealed to audiences in the 1970s who were more familiar with rock 'n' roll music, and were staged complete with light shows. His many recordings made on the RCA Victor and Capitol labels, mostly in the 1950s and 1960s, have been re-mastered and re-released on compact disc in recent years. They continue to be widely available in mainstream music stores.
Fox was born in Princeton, Illinois to Miles and Birdie Fox and showed musical talent at an early age. He began playing the organ for church services at the age of ten, and made a concert debut in 1926 before 2500 at Withrow High School, in Cincinnati, Ohio. At this concert he played Felix Mendelssohn's Sonata No. 1 in F minor.
