Music Directors

Beginning in 1990, Zion expanded the organist position to that of a Music Director by adding the role of Choir Director. In 1991, Karen Larson Black broadened the position by introducing the Handbells . The Contemporary Group Directorship was added in 1993 giving Zion an exciting and varied musical program.
