Harold Stover has been appointed Organist and Director of Music at St. Peter's following his substitute engagement last summer from September 9-30, 2018.
Harold is a native of Latrobe, PA and a graduate of The Julliard School in New York City. Now retired from full time church music work after having served churches in New York and Portland, ME, he directs the Portland-based chorus Renaissance Voices and serves on the faculty of the Portland Conservatory of Music and pursues an active career as a free-lance organist.
His activity as an organ recitalist spans half a century and includes concerts on most major New York series, at The National (Episcopal) Cathedral in Washington, DC, Westminister Abbey in London, Harvard and Princeton Universities, and many other distinguished venues. The N.Y. Times praised his "multiplicity of talents" and he has made ten appearances as organist and composer on Pipedreams, American Public Media's radio program of organ music.
