Our new PRLC organist, Jeffrey Cooper, will begin playing in worship on the First Sunday in Advent, December 2nd.
Jeffrey began his career in Northern California with undergraduate studies in organ at Chico State while playing the organ for numerous local churches. Since then, he has obtained a master’s degree in sacred music from the University of Notre Dame and a doctoral degree from the University of Houston. During his time in Texas, he has been organist and director of music at St. Christopher Episcopal Church in League City, as well as organ scholar at St. Philip Presbyterian Church in uptown Houston. His wife, Anna, is another musical Californian with a background in fiddle and voice. Together they keep a joyful household (to say the least) with two daughters: Elizabeth, age 3, and Ingrid, age 1.
We will welcome Jeffrey, Anna, Elizabeth, and Ingrid at a special reception following the second service on “Rejoice Sunday,” the Third Sunday in Advent, December 16th.
