Michael Smith has been appointed Organist and Choirmaster at Church of the Good Shepherd, Rosemont, PA. He leaves a similar post at Washington Memorial Chapel in Valley Forge National Park to begin work at this historic Anglo-Catholic parish on the Main Line in Philadelphia. He will work with Fr. Richard Alton, rector, to rebuild the music program which will include choral masses and sung minor propers each week. Michael remains at The Shipley School in Bryn Mawr, where his role has been expanded from Director of Music to Chair of Performing Arts. In his new capacity there, he oversees the music and theater programs for the entire PreK-12 curriculum. The school recently purchased nine new Steinway pianos and is developing plans for a new Arts building.
