About Me

Get to know Mary-Jo

I've been a church musician since age 16 when I was hired as organist for Lakeshore Drive United Church in my hometown of Morrisburg, Ontario. From that time on, I've almost always been connected with a church in a musical capacity. Wherever life took me, I would always find a church to play for, or a church would find me.
