New York Relocation
1 October, 2012
After six wonderful years in Chicago, I'm very happy to announce my acceptance of the Organist/Choirmaster position at St. Mary's Church in Nutley, NJ and subsequent relocation to the New York City area. While it is difficult to leave many extraordinary friends and colleagues in one of North America's greatest cities, I am delighted to have the opportunity to lead a growing music program and live within this mecca of the arts while also continuing my busy schedule of concerts. More about the St. Mary's music program may be found here.

This summer marked my début concert tour of Germany with 9 recitals at major venues whose non-stop schedule literally took me to all corners of the country over the course of 25 days. Memories of exceptional beauty, breathtaking cathedrals, and warm hospitality will not soon fade away. Pictures will continue to be added to the 2010 to present photo page in the coming weeks as well as recordings on the Media page. A complete itinerary with recital programs may be viewed on the 2011 Engagements page.
