Principal Organist: Jane Kerr

Jane Kerr grew up in the First Presbyterian Church in Verona, NJ which shaped her early love of church music and the organ. From her first children’s choir rehearsal, the organist and choir director was her inspiration. She became Jane’s organ teacher and mentor once she grew tall enough to reach the pedals at age 15. Jane went on to study organ at Westminster Choir College in Princeton. Over the next 30 years, life’s journey led Jane through numerous careers – away from the organ – until she and her husband moved to Alexandria and joined Calvary. Three months after that, Calvary’s organist announced her retirement and Jane felt the call of God to play the organ and return to the talent she had been given.
