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.
Davis holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Louisiana Tech, and a Masters in Music from Westminster Choir College. Since earning his Masters at Westminster in 1992, he has held organist / music director positions in three churches in Vermont and Alabama.
He is a member of the American Guild of Organists, the Association of Anglican Musicians, and the Royal School of Church Music.
