[From Mother Laura Howell, rector, Trinity Bethlehem] Merry Christmas, Trinity! After a nationwide search, we have appointed Dr. Timothy E. Smith to the position of Organist/Choir Director. He will take up his post on February 22, when the Bishop visits our parish. Dr. Smith comes to us from Riverside Church in Manhattan, where he was Director of Music and Organist since 1992. Before that he served as assistant organist at the Parish of Trinity Church, New York City (Trinity Wall Street). He is currently the University Organist at Columbia University, and will continue in that post. He has a Doctor of Musical Arts from the Manhattan School of Music, and a Master of Music from the Yale University Institute of Sacred Music. Dr. Smith has recorded a number of CDs, and has given numerous recitals both in the United States, France, Britain, and other countries. Please join us in rejoicing that another marvelous musician will be bringing the gift of music to the Diocese.
