SUMMIT, NJ - Kevin Davis, who has 24 years of experience leading adult, handbell and children’s choir programs, has joined the staff of Calvary Episcopal Church as Organist-Choirmaster.

Davis' stated plans include enhancing the Church's strong choral program by offering music that will be challenging but accessible for choir members, by recruiting new ensembles for worship, and by rebuilding the children’s Choristers program and the Handbell Choir.

While his initial focus will be on worship ensembles, Davis will also lead the Calvary Chorale, an extension of the Calvary Choir. The Chorale performs public concerts of sacred music throughout the year, often with orchestral accompaniment.
