Our
Directors

Westminster Church is home to a lively Ministry of Music and Arts. Here at Westminster, artistic and musical experiences are recognized as being vital to the health and development of the spiritual life of the individual and the community. Whenever humans engage in creative activity, whether through word, music, liturgy, or the material arts, we experience, in a special way, our connectedness to each other and to the God who created and sustains us all.

The Ministry of Music and Arts

 

The Westminster Choir wants you!  We rehease every Thursday evening (with few exceptions) from September till June, and sing every Sunday morning (with few exceptions). In addition to our regular Sunday duties, the choir also sings at special worship services (Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Holy Week, FOCUS services) and we periodically present larger-scale choral works, often accompanied by small orchestra or other ensemble. We have singers of all levels. Join us in making a joyful noise to the Lord!  Contact Al Fedak for more information about joining.

The Westminstrels Handbell Choir will be starting rehearsals soon. We're an intergenerational group of ringers who meet weekly several times a year for 4-5 weeks at a time to prepare musical offerings for worship services. We play on two sets of Malmark handbells (5-octave and 3-octave), as well as a 3-octave set of Suzuki ToneChimes. (New ringers are always welcome: an ability to read music is helpful but not essential.) Contact Sue Fedak for more information about joining.

The Ministers of

Music & Arts

Westminster Church is fortunate to have Alfred and Susan Fedak as our Ministers of Music and Arts.

Al is a nationally-known organist and composer whose choral and organ works and hymns are played and sung here regularly, as well as throughout the rest of North America and abroad. Recently Al served on the committee which produced Glory to God: the Presbyterian Hymnal, and oversaw the work of its music subcommittee. Besides playing the organ, planning the church’s music, and administering Westminster’s Concert Series, Al also serves as Organist/Choir Director at Albany’s Congregation Beth Emeth. 

Sue Fedak is one of the Capital Region’s leading choral conductors, singers, and teachers. At Westminster she shares the direction of the adult choir with Al and conducts the Westminstrels Handbell Choir. She also oversees the work of the church’s Visual Arts Committee. Outside the church, she is active in the region’s musical life as a soloist, as Founding Artistic Director of the Hudson-Mohawk Chorale, and as a member of the voice faculty of Schenectady County Community College’s School of Music.
