Norm Crarey, Director


Norm Crarey



Since 2013 Mr. Norm Crarey has been our choir director / organist. 
Prior, he directed church choirs for over 33 years. A D.C. native, 
Mr. Crarey has worked in Methodist, Episcopal, Unitarian, Baptist, and 
Seventh Day Adventist churches, to name just a few. In 2006 and 2008 
he conducted concert tours in Spain and Portugal for "PromoConcert", 
a musical promotion. Locally, he is the FT choral and instrumental music 
teacher at Julius West MS in MoCo. He has a B.S. in Music Education 
(emphasis in piano and composition) and a Master of Music degree in Choral Conducting. 

Suffice it to say that Mr. Craray is emminently qualified for this hybrid job that combines choir directing plus being the accompanyist.
