We are so happy to announce that Matthew Johnson has accepted the position of Organist / Music Director at Christ Church Tashua! As many of you saw (and heard!) when he was a guest organist a couple of weeks ago, Matt is a talented and enthusiastic young man! We know that Matt will bring so much to our church as he sings and plays and encourages us all to be a part of the music during our worship service on Sunday mornings. Here’s a little bit about Matt …
Matt received his Bachelors in Music from Western Connecticut State University in May of 2017. He also completed the New York Vocal Coaching Teacher Training program. This program features work on vocal science and pedagogy; culminating in students learning how to create their own voice exercises to achieve the best results from their students. Matt has worked at many local churches with positions ranging from Schola Singer to Section Leader to Assisting Minister, Youth Representative. At this time, Matt is a Voice/Piano Teacher and Music Director at the Performing Arts Conservatory of New Canaan and also at the Music Theatre of Connecticut in Norwalk.
Currently, Matt is performing at the Summer Theatre of New Canaan in the production of James and the Giant Peach. In addition to performing in the musical, Matt is providing music direction … and he will also provide music direction for the production of Cole Porter’s Kiss Me Kate.
Whew!! Matt is a very busy guy and we are so thankful that he will be joining us at Christ Church Tashua!
Come and welcome Matt as he begins his time with us on Sunday, August 5th.
