First Parish Has a New Music Director

It is with great pleasure that we announce the engagement of Mr. Luca Antonucci as our new Music Director and Organist.

Luca is a graduate of Amherst College and has a Masters in Music degree from the Hartt School at the University of Hartford. He has also studied at the University of Vienna under a Fulbright Grant. He teaches general and instrumental music at the Brimmer and May School in Chestnut Hill. He has also served as Assistant Conductor for the Pioneer Valley Symphony and as the Music Director and Conductor of the Pioneer Valley Symphony Youth Orchestra.

As Music Director and Organist, he will be responsible for all aspects of music at First Parish, working with Reverend Bob McKetchnie to develop music for Sunday services, leading the Adult Choir and the Bell Choir, and reinstituting the Children’s Choir.

Special appreciation is due to the committee who worked so hard to find a replacement for Caroline Harvey. They were Mary Parker (Chair), Nancy Sandell, Mike Nakashima, Meg DeWitt, Holly Harris, John Kornet, and Caroline Harvey.
