I’m excited to announce my appointment as Interim Assistant Organist and Choirmaster at Saint Mark’s Church, Philadelphia for the 2019-2020 season. Starting in September, I’ll split my time between New York and Philadelphia while I finish my studies at Mannes. Saint Mark’s holds a special place in my heart: it is where I served as Organ Scholar for three years, working with many friendly and talented people. In this new role I’ll work in all things music at the church including playing the organ, conducting, and assisting in mentoring the Organ Scholar.
This follows a wonderful year at Marble Collegiate Church where I served as Guest Organist In Residence. It was a privilege to work with Ken Dake and the musicians at Marble, who are truly some of the finest in New York City. I look forward to seeing the Marble family around the proverbial bend and am grateful for my time there.
I can’t wait to be back on the Saint Mark’s music team in my new role and I hope you’ll join us for an exciting season ahead!
