James Barkovic enthusiastically welcomes musicians of all ages and abilities to participate in the musical life of the church. If you would like to learn more about our music program and how you might participate, please contact the church office in order to speak with him.
Jim did his undergraduate work in music history and theory at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minn., and received a master’s degree in piano performance from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. While at NEC, he studied organ improvisation with William Porter. He is an accomplished church musician and choral, vocal and instrumental accompanist who also serves as director of music at Holy Family Parish, a Roman Catholic congregation across town.
Jim is also the artistic director of the Westford Chorus, the assistant director and accompanist for the Spectrum Singers, the chapel organist at Middlesex School, and a faculty accompanist at the Indian Hill Music Center. When not making music at church, you might find Jim jogging on the roads and paths around Concord or hiking in the White Mountains.
