St. Clement’s Calls New Director of Music

It is with much excitement that we announce that Dr. Matthew “Matt” Wood has accepted the call to be our next Director of Music.

Matt is a Ph.D. candidate in Musicology at Louisiana State University, has earned his D.M.A. from Louisiana State University, M.M. from the University of New Orleans, and B.M. from the University of West Florida.

He currently serves as the Organist at University United Methodist Church in Baton Rouge, and has previously been Music Director and Organist at Lutheran and Episcopal Churches.

Matt is a native of Truckee, California, and he and his husband Mathew are very much looking forward to relocating to Northern California.

His skills and positive energy will be a great boost to the St. Clement’s community.

We continue to give thanks for the leadership of Interim Choir Director Jake Street, who will be with us through June, as well as our dedicated choir who has sailed through the time of transition, leading us in joyful noise.

Please join us for worship on Sundays at 10 AM.
