Organ Performance 

Due to various recent trends, there has become a growing need for qualified church organists to provide music for worship services, memorial services, and weddings.

 

Though my life's work has been in the area of brass teaching and performance, I have been active as an organist and pianist at various times in my life.  Recent career changes have afforded me the opportunity to return to that medium, becoming active at both St. Mark's Lutheran Church in Oakland, MD, and St. Paul's United Church of Christ in Somerset, PA as pianist and organist for worship and memorial services, and at various churches and communities as keyboardist for weddings, or as choir rehearsal accompanist.

You are invited to investigate the repertoire lists and clips below, and to contact me for availability and further information

(Sample clips of my church music performance on organ follow the wedding information below.)
