Interview with Jeffrey Blersch

Not many CPH composers got their first organist jobs at eight years old, but Jeffrey Blersch was one of them. A little bit taller and older now, Jeff has published more than one hundred compositions and arrangements exclusively with CPH Music.

Last week, he gave a live online performance of three new compositions and talked to us about his music background. Read highlights from our conversation below, and head to our YouTube channel to watch a recording of the event.

Interview with John Behnke

Every music piece has a story behind it, and composer John Behnke has a ton of stories.

With plenty of humor and clear passion for what he does, Dr. Behnke told us about the ups and downs in his time as a composer. As a seasoned church musician, teacher, and composer, he shared some of his expert knowledge on writing music that can easily be used by a wide range of churches.

Interview with Kevin Hildebrand and Matthew Machemer

“We’ve got the best jobs in the Missouri Synod.”

Kevin Hildebrand and his co-worker Matthew Machemer are kantors at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

But beyond that, they are talented organists, passionate composers, joyful teachers, and careful shapers of how future pastors view music ministry in the parish. Kevin and Matt recently sat down with us to talk about how they got started in music and to tell us the stories behind their new pieces for Lent.
