Welcome Joel Davidson, Our Interim Music Director

Our Music Director, Luca Antonucci, has requested and has been granted one year off to repair and rehabilitate his arm and hand due to a painful condition commonly known as tennis elbow.  We wish Luca well as he progresses through his medical plan and look forward to his return in September 2020.   
During Luca’s absence Joel Davidson will serve as the Interim Music Director for this church year.  As Interim, Joel will be involved in all aspects of our music experience at First Parish including Vespers Services, the adult and children’s choirs, Sundays and special services. You may recognize Joel when you see him, as he has played a few times at First Parish, both accompanying Luca when he played trumpet or while filling in for him.  I look forward to working with Joel in the coming year.

I’m looking forward to serving as interim music director at First Parish Cohasset!

My first job was as skeeball assistant at Paragon Park in Hull where both my grandparents lived. That’s how I built up my arms to play piano and organ!  I am a Quincy native, lawyer and high holiday cantor for a synagogue in Saugus.  I studied music at Eastern Nazarene College in Wollaston, Milton Academy, Harvard 
University and the New England Conservatory of Music.
