Jennaya Robison, DMA, First Lutheran’s director of music, announced she accepted an appointment as the Raymond R. Neevel/Missouri Endowed Professorship in Choral Music and Director of Choral Activities in the Conservatory of Music at the University of Missouri-Kansas City effective September 1, 2020.

“This decision did not come easily,” she said, “but ultimately is one that fulfills my aspirations both as a scholar and as a leader.

“It has been my pleasure to serve First Lutheran Church as your Director of Music these past several years. Working with you, sharing our journey of faith, fellowship, and music has meant so much to me. Your support of my endeavors, of my family and your shared kindness and genuine love for one another is truly a gift.”

Jennaya intends to remain at FLC until the family moves this summer. “We have lots of great things ahead of us. I will miss you all dearly and the church family at First Lutheran.”
