Suzanne Jalbert Jones named Director of Music
Suzanne Jalbert Jones has been named Interim Director of Music at Christ Church.
As our Director of Music from 2014 - 2018, Suzanne enjoyed the richly musical and spiritual parish of Christ Church and considers it her home. She brings with her a diverse background of musical training from New England Conservatory of Music and University of New Hampshire, although her greatest teachers are her friends and family, with whom she often shares the stage. She honors the power of music to heal and bring people together and has built her musical practice upon that tenant. She hopes to inspire any individual, with a song in their heart, to join the Christ Church Choir! In her words: "she is grateful to once again be making a joyful sound with Christ Church Exeter." Suzanne will join us next Sunday, January 22nd.
