Weston Jennings | Artistic & Executive Director

Weston Jennings joined the Tyler Civic Chorale as Artistic and Executive Director in September of 2017. He is a graduate of Yale University’s Institute of Sacred Music—a center for the interdisciplinary study of sacred music, worship, and the related arts—and formerly served on the music staff of Christ Church, New Haven, Connecticut. Following a year at the Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan, he earned his Bachelor of Music degree and the Performer’s Certificate from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York.

Prior to his studies at Yale, he resided in England for two years as the Organ Scholar of Canterbury Cathedral, and later the Cathedral Church of St. Mary, St. Peter, and St. Cedd in Chelmsford. During this time he played an integral role in the musical lives of these centuries-old institutions and directed both professional and amateur choirs. In August of 2017, Weston moved to Tyler, Texas to serve as Director of Music and Organist of First Presbyterian Church where he oversees a comprehensive music program consisting of multiple singing choirs, two handbell choirs, and a regular concert series.
