Father Scott Letter

May 4, 2022


Dear parishioners and friends of St. Joseph Parish,

Today, I am writing to share the wonderful news that St. Joseph Parish

has successfully completed its search for our next Director of Music and
Organist. After an extensive nationwide process, we are pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Robert Fertitta as the next Director of Music and Organist.

Mr. Fertitta is a distinguished music educator, performer, and pastoral musician. He brings a wealth of experience in playing the organ at Catholic parishes, including St. Joseph Parish, where he was our guest organist for Palm Sunday this year. He has
given solo organ recitals at Trinity Church, Wall Street; St. Paul’s Chapel at Columbia University; and St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

As a pianist, he has given solo recitals, chamber music programs, and over 150 recitals with students at the Purchase College Conservatory of Music, where he was on the faculty as professor of music for thirty years.

As a conductor, Mr. Fertitta has been the conductor for the Messiah “Sing-Ins” at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center, at various Bach and Mozart Festivals, and as Director of the Purchase College Choir. In addition, Mr. Fertitta’s cadenzas for six of Mozart’s concertos have been performed in the United States, Canada, Europe, South America, and Australia.

Mr. Fertitta received his musical education at Hunter College, Queens College, and the Graduate School of the City University of New York. His principal teachers were Louise Talma, Donald Lybbert, Herbert Rogers, James Harrison, and Carl Schachter. He also attended L’Ecoles d’Art Americaines in Fontainebleau, France, where he was a student
of Nadia Boulanger.

In addition to his musical achievements, Mr. Fertitta is the founder, photographer, and curator of the ―Gallery of Stained Glass Art,  and the author of―A Guide to Stained Glass Photography. His photographic reproductions of stained glass windows include
magnificent photographs of St. Joseph Parish’s windows, which were sixth on his list of over 1500 churches, chapels, and cathedrals which he selected to photograph.

We are simultaneously excited and humbled to have Mr. Fertitta lead our music ministry. He connects easily with parishioners and music lovers of all ages and seeks to encourage the next generation of church musicians to thrive in parish life. We thank
him for accepting the position of Music Director and Organist in the complicated times in which we live. We look forward to his long and fruitful tenure at St. Joseph Parish.

Devotedly in Christ,


Rev. Samuel V. Scott
