The Session of Gladwyne Presbyterian Church is pleased to announce the hiring of a new music director, Pavel Zarukin. The search team consisting of Rev. Margaret Somerville, Douglas Roberts, Sandra Simmons, Greg Loux, Peggy Johnson and Veronica Hall did a wonderful search and were all very excited to put forward Pavel as their candidate. Session enthusiastically accepted the recommendation and the offer was extended.
Pavel is very familiar with the Gladwyne Community as he serves as the Choir Director at Beth David Reform Synagogue. He has also been a music teacher in public schools in New Jersey, has been a piano instructor at the Musical Arts Academy in Doylestown and was on the faculty of the St. Petersburg State Conservatory in Russia where he received his training.
Pavel will begin his ministry with us on Sunday, April 8th.
