Tim Benson, Music Ministry Director
St. Paul’s Adult Choir
St. Paul’s Episcopal Church has long regarded music to be an integral part of its liturgical expression. For years, the church maintained a choir of men and boys who sang regularly at services.
The focus changed in the latter half of the twentieth century to an adult choir of professional and highly skilled amateur singers, with a reputation for high standards and beautiful music making drawn from the Anglican heritage. They sing regularly at the Sunday Eucharist, Seasonal Evensongs and special performances throughout the year.
St. Paul’s Music Ministry Director
Before coming to St. Paul’s, Tim Benson served as Director of Music/Organist and Liturgy at St. Dominic Catholic Church in Brookfield, and he has been the Assistant Conductor of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra Chorus since 1996.
Tim has two master’s degrees, one in Orchestral and Choral Conducting from the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music, Milwaukee, and the other in Composition (music) from Cambridge University, King’s College, Cambridge, England. He also has a B.A. degree in Education from Marquette University.
