At the 2018 Commencement of The University of Redlands, Frederick Swann, our Organ Artist-in-Residence, was presented with an Honorary Doctorate of Music degree. Fred has been the university organist and organ professor at Redlands for the past eleven years and has officially retired from the position as of last week.
Prior to beginning his work at Redlands, Fred had served many years as organist and director of three large and prestigious churches, each well known for their excellence in music – Riverside Church in New York City, the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, and First Congregational Church in Los Angeles. (He carried on this style of excellence in his teaching at Redlands as well!)
We congratulate Dr. Swann on this latest achievement and look forward to his continuing music ministry with us at St. Margaret’s.
