Jeff has been serving as the Director of Music at St. John's Lutheran Church since the late fall of 2017. In addition to his role here as Director of Music, Jeff also directs the 'Soli Deo Gloria' Concert Series which he founded in the summer of 2016. He began his study of music at the age of 8 under the direction of his grandfather, Lutheran organist Donald Hennemann. By the time he was a young adult, he was serving as a substitute organist for various Lutheran churches throughout New England. During his college years, he studied organ improvisation with first prize winner of the Leipzig International J. S. Bach Competition and former organist of First Lutheran Church of Boston, Balint Karosi. Following graduation with his Bachelor’s degree, Jeff served as organist at First Lutheran Church of Holyoke MA from 2014 until his appointment at St. John's. He particularly enjoys performing music drawn from the rich musical heritage of the Lutheran Church and the German Baroque era, and also has great enthusiasm for improvising in the Baroque style based on the church’s hymnody. In addition to his church and concert commitments, Jeff remains active as a member of both the Association of Lutheran Church Musicians (ALCM) and the American Guild of Organists (AGO). Jeff can be heard online on his YouTube Channel and can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
