Director of Grace Notes
My name is Megan Fenoglietto. As the Director of Grace Notes, the handbell choir at St Peter’s, my goal is to foster a love for music and grow the musical abilities of our ringers. I work to create an environment where we can “know and share the love of Christ” through our music. I prefer music that is a healthy mix of traditional church hymns and contemporary pieces at an appropriate musical level for our ringers. I had an early experience playing handbells as an after school class in middle school. I continued my involvement and passion in music through high school and college playing instruments such as the flute, piccolo, saxophone, and mellophone in marching and concert bands. I also served as the marching band drum major for two years in high school and two years in college. I joined St Peter’s handbell choir as a playing member in 2009 and became the director in 2016. Grace Notes has grown to be an integral part of St Peter’s music ministries and I am blessed to be a part of such an amazing group.
