Director of Music, Dr. Susan Jane Matthews
Dr. Matthews has been Director of Music at St. Paul’s since 2005 where she serves as organist and director of the choirs, including founding director of the Choir School and the Evensong series (2007).
Susan grew up in Pennsylvania, graduated from Haverford College as a chemistry major, and attended two years of medical school during which time she found a home in the Episcopal church while searching for a place to practice organ. This began a journey to a completely different doctorate, to concertizing in amazing sacred places around the world, and to her vocation as a church musician in the Episcopal Church where music is an integral part of the liturgy.
