Mark Johnson, Music Director

Mark’s choral leadership experience goes back to 1976. He led the music program at Grace Church in Providence, RI, from 1989 to 2014. During that time, he also worked with community choirs to help build a variety of new music programs. After leaving Providence, he and his wife Jennifer have brought their musical talents to churches in the northwest corner. St. Michael’s is thrilled to have this talented and dedicated musician as our director. The music is varied and sometimes original, and always in keeping with the season and liturgy of the day.  If you would like to join the choir or lend other musical talents to the worship service, please contact Mark.
