We are pleased to share the news that our Personnel Committee, on behalf of Session, has hired Matt Zabiegala (pronounced: zabby-gála) as our new Director of Music at PCCT! We are thrilled to have Matt join our church family, leading our music program for the years ahead. Matt will officially join our staff on October 1, 2021, but he would like to meet the congregation, and our choir members before then.
Matt is an accomplished musician in choral leadership, organ, and piano accompaniment – as well as leading children and youth ensembles. He holds a Master’s Degree in choral conducting from the distinguished choral program at Rutgers University and earned his undergraduate degree in music from Ohio State. Matt hails from Medina, Ohio, and now lives here in Chatham. He is thrilled to be serving a church in the town where he lives. Matt is also experienced in conducting hand bell choirs, youth choruses, and has offered a wide variety of instrumental music instruction. He currently is artistic director of the New Jersey Chamber Singers and formerly served as music director at the Bridgewater United Methodist Church. He was also Director of Choral/Vocal Music at Morris Knolls High School until this June. To read more about Matt, click HERE.
We give thanks to God that Matt can be joining us at this exciting time of rebirth at our church.
