Hi. I'm Tom Brown, Director of Music at Covenant Presbyterian Church, Austin, TX, where I've served since 1995. My early career has included positions as choral director at public schools in Natchez, MS; Baton Rouge, LA and at the University of Southern MS, Hattiesburg. I hold degrees from Louisiana St. University, Northeast Louisiana University, and a doctorate from University of Illinois.  While happily steeped in traditional choral literature and liturgy, my choirs present an eclectic variety of music from extended works with orchestra to an annual "Jazz Sunday" with much else in between.  I conduct two adult choirs, a chamber choir, and oversee a program including 5 children's choirs, youth choir, handbell choirs and various ensembles.  I have arrangements published by Shawnee and Abingdon.  I've also written numerous unpublished arrangements for our jazz services over the years, largely hymns which can be arranged in various jazz styles.  I am interested in creative alternatives to praise music and have written numerous arrangments for a our "Folk-Celtic Ensemble", especially arrangements of traditional hymns which crossover naturally into folk styles. (I'm always interested in talking to others who do the same.)  You can contact me at:
