About the Artist:
Jean Degan earned a bachelor of science degree from UCONN in music education with piano as her principle instrument. Her love of accompanying led her to church music where she was able to work with many fine musicians for worship and concerts. She received a bachelor of music degree in organ performance and a Masters degree in Liturgical Music from the Hartt school of Music.
Jean has been very active throughout the Archdiocese of Hartford making recordings for “MusicQuest”, accompanying choir festivals and giving workshops for National Pastoral Musicians and Handbell Musicians of America.
Jean recently retired from St. Joseph Church in Bristol, CT where she was director of the Music Ministry program for 37 years. She saw the refurbishment of the 1928 Austin Organ and the installation of a new Austin instrument in 2005. The two instruments complement each other and work very well together.
