Megan Fenoglietto

Director of Grace Notes

Megan Fenoglietto is the Director of Grace Notes Handbell Choir at St Peter’s. Her goal is to foster a love for music and grow the musical abilities of St. Peter's ringers. She works to create an environment where the ringers can “know and share the love of Christ” through their music. She prefers music that is a healthy mix of traditional church hymns and contemporary pieces at an appropriate musical level for the ringers. Megan had an early experience playing handbells with an after school class in middle school. Megan continued her 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. She also served as the marching band drum major for two years in high school and two years in college. Megan 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 Megan feels blessed to be a part of such an amazing group.
