Dr. Geoffrey North

Dr. Geoffrey North is our Director of Music Ministries & Church Organist. He holds a a B.A. from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and a Masters & Doctorate in Music Composition from Northwestern University.

Geoff says:

I’m originally from Nova Scotia, but have lived in the United States since 1999, when I moved to Chicago to attend graduate school. My wife Jessie and I have two daughters, Katie & Annabel, and far too many animals (a dog and three cats). I’m also the Choir Director at Trine University and am an Adjunct Faculty Member in IPFW’s music department, teaching music theory & aural skills and accompanying their choir. I’ve been at First Wayne Street since July 2010. I believe that I’ve grown as a musician since coming to First Wayne Street. The amazing organ has inspired me to learn wonderful new pieces, and the choirs and instrumentalists are a joy to make music with. I’m happy to call Fort Wayne home.”
