New Organist & Choirmaster Named at St. Philip's

Updated: May 18, 2022

St. Philip's Episcopal Church is pleased to announce the hiring of Dr. Rafael Scarfullery as Organist and Choirmaster, effective November 1, 2021. Rafael joins us from Virginia where he has served the last twelve years as choir director and organist in the United Methodist Church.

Rafael is a composer, organist, classical guitarist, and orchestral/choral conductor. He has four university degrees (Brooklyn College and Shenandoah University) and four professional certifications (American Guild of Organists), including the AAGO. He plays therapeutic music and his professional career includes two Carnegie Hall recitals, concerts in many countries, and different awards. His music publications and recordings are available on his website:

Rafael's skill set, education, and work experience in the Methodist and Episcopal Church make him an outstanding choice to enrich the liturgical worship of St. Philip's by developing and nurturing our music ministry. We look forward to welcoming him with us in November.

Faithfully yours in Christ,

Fr. Justin Briggle, Rector

St. Philip's Episcopal Church
