MUSIC AT CCMI

Who We Are

Music is an integral part to worship at CCMI.  The CCMI choir is fortunate to have soloist and section leaders Megan Parker-Soprano, Carol Sanders- Alto, Aaron Shanks-Tenor and Jeff Church-Bass.  The choir is welcome to all!  If you are interested in singing, please join us in the sanctuary on Thursday evenings from 7:30 - 9:00, and at 9:30 a.m. before the church service each Sunday.


We are blessed to have acclaimed bass-baritone soloist, accompanist, coach and opera director Jeff Caldwell as CCMI's Music Director.  Jeff Caldwell has returned to Seattle after spending 13 years in New York City. In addition to his leadership at CCMI, he is a Staff Accompanist in the School of Music at the University of Puget Sound. He was on the faculty for the Juilliard School Drama Division as musical vocal coach, worked at NYU's Tisch School and CAP21 programs, and taught at AMDA as a voice teacher and staff accompanist. 

As a singer Jeff performed with New York City Opera in the choruses of Haroun and the Sea of Stories, La Fanciulla del West, and Cendrillon, as well as with the New York Choral Artists with the New York Philharmonic and with the Vienna Philharmonic in Carnegie Hall.
