All about ME!!!

Hi.  My name is Chris Prestia.  I am a very serious musician.  I play cello, piano, organ, bassoon, and flute.  I currently serve the Lord as organist and choirmaster at the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd and St. John the Evangelist.  I hope to someday be the organist and choirmaster of a church professionally.  I am also a bit of a composer.  You can hear and download some of my compositions and arrangements by clicking the title in the navigation bar on the left.
