Meet Our Interim Organist


CHRISTOPHER SAHAR

Chris’s love of music began when studying piano at 7 in Kearny, NJ.  Although he started composing short piano pieces as young as 10, it wasn't until his late 30’s that he embarked on serious study of music composition first with private teachers then at Juilliard's Evening Division and culminating recently in earning a Master’s in Music from Queens College/City University of New York with a concentration in composition. He has had premieres of his music both in the United States and Greece. Presently he is applying for PhD programs in music composition.

 

His experience as an organist and choral accompanist arose over 15 years ago when he was accompanist to adult choirs in Long Island and Manhattan from 1999 - 2007. During this period, he secured a position as music director at an Episcopal Church in Queens which prompted him to take organ instruction with Rick Erickson, former cantor at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in the Lincoln Center area of Manhattan and choir director of the Bach Singers.  He has been a member of the American Guild of Organist since 2005 and earned a Service Playing Certificate in 2007.  Since then 

he has been an interim organist at the Slovak Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, substitute organist at Roman Catholic, Episcopalian and Methodist congregations including Grace Methodist Church in Kearny, NJ.  

 

 What Chris enjoys most as a church organist is supporting and enhancing the worship experience with the vast resources of the choral and organ canon and the best of contemporary hymn and choral offerings.
