Moseley Memorial Music Series
The Moseley Music Fund, which helps to finance our concert series, is established in memory of John Moseley, organist/choirmaster at Saint Thomas’ from 1958 to 1996. Much of the tradition and vision we enjoy in worship and music to this day is because of the foundation laid by Mr. Moseley. As we continue to build on that foundation, we affirm and thank God for the ministry of John Moseley.
