Laura Nevitt, First Parish Music Director

by | Sep 9, 2021

Hello, all! My name is Laura Nevitt (she/they) and I am so glad to be joining you as the new Music Director. I have grown up and served in many churches, but this will be my first time in a UU Congregation. I am so excited for this, because my beliefs much more align with your principles. I am a member of the Queer community, and am passionate about social justice. I grew up in South Carolina, where I studied composition, voice, guitar, and music education. I taught 6th grade chorus in a public school and a music intern and Director of the Children’s Music Program. I love all kinds of music – especially folk music. I am so looking forward to enjoying the many ways we will celebrate diversity together, both musically and in many other ways. I also have a dog named Jim and a cat named Owen who keep me on my toes! Please feel free to reach out to me – I hope to meet you all in person sometime soon!
