Dr. Jay Hershberger
Although, Jay was trained primarily as a concert pianist, and serves as professor of piano at Concordia College, Jay is also an experienced church organist and choirmaster, and has been moonlighting as such for the past 20 years in several parishes. His degrees are from Arizona State University, Wichita State University, and the University of Tulsa. He is also enrolled at Nashotah House Seminary and is pursuing a Master of Theological Studies.
The Cathedral Choir
The Cathedral Choir sings at the 10:30 cathedral worship service. Their repertoire ranges from Palestrina, Bach, and Handel, to the English choral tradition past and present. As well, the Cathedral Choir sings African-American spirituals, other folksong traditions, as well as the best in contemporary anthems and hymns. The choir rehearses on Sunday mornings at 9:30am prior to the service. If you can sing and read music, please contact Dr. Hershberger and come make a joyful noise to the Lord (laughter, regaling humor, and bad puns also make frequent appearances during rehearsals).
