Biography

Alfred V. Fedak, (b. 1953) Minister of Music and Arts at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Albany, is a native of Elizabeth, NJ, and earned degrees from Hope College in Michigan and Montclair State University. He has done additional study at Westminster Choir College and in Austria and England. A Fellow of the American Guild of Organists, he also holds the AGO Choirmaster Certificate and since 1995 has served as Director of the Guild’s national Professional Certification Committee.

The winner of many honors and awards for organ performance and composition, Mr. Fedak is a well-known composer of church music. His choral and organ works appear in the catalogs of ten publishers, and his hymn tunes are in many hymnals in both the United States and Canada. Two anthologies of his hymn tunes have been published by the Selah Publishing Company: “The Alfred V. Fedak Hymnary” and “Sing to the Lord No Threadbare Song.”

He has performed and lectured around the country, including at national conferences of the AGO and the Hymn Society. He has served as a faculty member for Hymn Society hymn writers’ courses, judged numerous competitions, and written articles and reviews for “The American Organist,” “Reformed Worship,” and “The Hymn.” He currently serves as a member of the Hymnal Supplement Committee of the Reformed Church in America.

In 1999, Mr. Fedak received an individual Artist Grant in Composition from the New York State Council on the Arts. He and his wife, Susan, who is Associate Minister of Music and Arts at Westminster Church, have two grown sons, Peter and Benjamin.
