Deborah Sparks Mueller directs the church choirs…e.g., the handbell choir, orff ensemble, and the chancel choir, along with the Christmas pageant. She does a tremendous amount to further the music ministry of the Gayton Kirk. The Kirk has been blessed to have Debbie as the Music Director for 25 years. She is also the Director of the Center for the Arts. She holds a Bachelor of Music Education from the University of Delaware with an emphasis in voice. She studied voice with Todd Duncan, the original Porgy in Gershwin’s “Porgy & Bess and has taught piano and voice for 37 years.
Debbie provides many wonderful opportunities for musicians (both young and old) to contribute their gifts. People are invited to learn orff instruments, sing in the choir, play handbells, and participate in occasional musicals and plays. Other members and friends of the Kirk have been invited to play their musical instruments (flute, recorder, violin, saxophone, harp, piano, guitar, etc.) in our different worship services. Debbie enjoys embracing the many musical talents that people bring to our worshiping community.
