Hello! My name is Evan Nelson and I am the church choir director at Salem United Methodist Church. I am originally from Albany, Georgia and I have been involved with music my entire life. I finished my undergraduate degree in music and theatre at Florida State University and I recently finished my Master of Music in Voice Performance at Binghamton University of Binghamton, NY. My performance resume includes experiences in operas, musicals, concerts, and sacred works. The reason I love music is because I feel that it is one of the few artistic mediums that we are able to share as a community but also it is something that can help us express our feelings and emotions in a unique way. As your choir director, my goal is to enhance the service with musical selections and to inspire all of us to share the love of Jesus. I feel that music can add so much to the service and that when it is coordinated with the rest of the goals of the worship team, we can create an environment that is not only welcoming but also empowering. I also will try my hardest to make the choir a fun, amicable environment that is filled with music and fellowship.
