Organist & Director of MusicIt is indeed an honor to be your new Organist and Choirmaster at Trinity. As a Norfolk native, a music graduate of Old Dominion University, and Organist and Choirmaster at First Lutheran Church, I know of Trinity’s fine musical tradition. I received a Master of Sacred Music degree (cum laude) from New York’s Union Theological Seminary and while there, was a musical assistant at the iconic St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church. Subsequently, in the Midwest I served First-Plymouth Church, the third largest UCC church in the country, followed by a position at First Presbyterian in Florida. I am delighted to return to the area of my roots and look forward to an exciting new challenge at Trinity Church.
