We are delighted to welcome Benjamin Corwyn as our new organist. Our organist search committee was thoroughly impressed with Ben’s musical skills, his history of involvement with the church, and his personal warmth.
Recently moving back to Colorado, Ben says he is excited to join Wheat Ridge Congregational Church UCC as the new organist. Benjamin grew up in Texas, where he began to play the piano at the age of 6 and took an interest in organ lessons during high school. He received his undergraduate degree from Dallas Baptist University in Theory/Composition and his masters in music from the University of Colorado, Boulder, in Collaborative Piano. Prior to moving back to Colorado, Benjamin worked as a church keyboardist and organist as well as a high school accompanist in the Kansas City area. His current music endeavors include singing with Kantorei, a nationally-renowned choral ensemble. Benjamin is employed full time as the Executive Assistant at the Gill Foundation. Besides music, Benjamin enjoys playing volleyball, cooking various cuisines, traveling, and enjoying the outdoors with his husband Josh, and dog, Cedar.
Ben’s first Sunday will be July 17. We hope you will join us in welcoming him on that Sunday, which also happens to be the date of our ice cream social (“Sundae Sunday”).
