Somers Congregational Church welcomes our new Organist and Choir Director, Matt Bickett, beginning Sunday, October 4th.
Matt is an organist and harpsichordist from Portsmouth, OH. Currently a student at Yale Divinity School and the Yale Institute of Sacred Music, Matt just completed his combined Bachelors and Masters degrees at Oberlin Conservatory of Music. Equally at home with historic and contemporary music, Matt centers his performances around historically informed playing styles and techniques. In the US, Matt has performed at notable venues such as St. Mark’s Cathedral in Seattle, Community of Christ Auditorium in Kansas City, and in Cleveland at Church of the Covenant and Trinity Lutheran Church. Recent international performances have taken him to Kungsbacka, Sweden; Haarlem, the Netherlands; Poitiers, France; and Smarano, Italy.
