• Organist and conductor Andrew Peters serves as organist and director of music at Second Presbyterian Church in St. Louis. At the church he directs the choral groups and handbell choir, plays the church’s restored 1965 Schantz organ, and oversees the church’s Couts Music Series as artistic director. Peters holds degrees from St. Olaf College and the Cleveland Institute of Music. His congregational hymn settings for brass and organ are published by MorningStar Music. A recipient of numerous awards, Peters is known for both his organ recitals and accompaniments to silent movies, especially those starring Harold Lloyd.

• Joining Andrew are members of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra French Horn Section including Roger Kaza, Thomas Jöstlein, Christopher Dwyer, Tod Bowermaster, and Julie Thayer. There may even be an Alpine Horn or two thrown in for good measure!
