The Oldest Orthodox Christian Church of Buffalo Welcomes New Choir Director

Zach

Z

achariah James Mandell (Zach) is a relative newcomer to the Buffalo area, having moved from Clearfield, Pennsylvania in the summer of 2014 in order to pursue graduate studies at the University at Buffalo. After graduating from the Pennsylvania State University with B.A.s in Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies and History, with minors in Greek, Latin, and International Studies, Zach began his Master’s Degree in the fall of 2014 in the SUNY Buffalo Classics department, with a focus in Greek and Latin Language and Literature.

Zach’s entire life has been steeped in the church and in music. He was born and raised as an Orthodox Christian by faithful Orthodox parents, both of whom went to college for music: his mother studied opera, while his father has served for many years as a high school band director and as the choir director at St. Michael’s parish in Irvona, PA.

Zach’s own musical experience includes a life-time of singing in church and school choirs, 14 years of playing the trombone, and holding the post of choir director at Holy Trinity Orthodox Church in State College, PA, during his senior year at Penn State. He has garnered a healthy passion for liturgical music over the years, and is thrilled for the opportunity to sing with and direct the choir at Saint Peter and Paul’s Orthodox Church for the glory of God.

Zach has already directed our choir during the most recent visit to our parish by His Eminence Archibishop Michael, he will be able to join us on more permanent basis at the end of August! Welcome Zach and we hope and will try our best to not disappoint you!
