Paul Fejko, Music Director, Organist
If it has something to do with musical performance, Paul Fejko has probably done it. When rather young, Paul was accepted into the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, PA. He graduated in 1975 and went on to achieve international renown as a composer/conductor and performer. His greatest influences while at Curtis were Alexander McCurdy, Rudolf Serkin, Dino Yanopoulos and Max Rudolf. He has worked with Maurice Bejart's Ballet of the Twentieth Century in Brussels, Belgium and was Music Director of the Ballet of Lyon in France.
Presently, in addition to being Music Director of Gloria Dei, he is a musician with both the Muhlenberg College and the University of the Arts Schools of Dance, as well as the Music and Technical Director of the Southern New Jersey Academy of the Performing Arts. He works with various theater and dance groups in Philadelphia and New York City and has regular concert tours in Luxembourg, France and Belgium. To these he adds running a small performance space in Chester, PA known as The André Café Acoustique (www.andre-cafe.com), and is founder of the Chester Performing Arts Project.

Music is an important part of Gloria Dei's spiritual life.
"Make a glorious noise"
In 2010, we purchased a three octave set of Malmark 'Hand Chimes'. The Gloria Dei Ringers rehearse Tuesday nights at 7pm in the church and perform one Sunday a month at the 11am service. If you might wish to join in, simply come on by - we will find a bell for you!
Lately we have been engaging professional instrumentalists and vocalists on an occasional basis as funding permits. Any and all who would like to contribute either funding or talent are welcome to contact music director Paul Fejko (firstname.lastname@example.org, 609/462-9000).
We've got a station on YouTube. Be sure to listen to Haiku, arranged by Paul Fejko. More clips featuring The Choir of Gloria Dei (Old Swedes') Church coming soon! Click here to listen to Haiku (via YouTube) or click on the video below.
