He is married to Natalia, and the have a one-year old son, Giovanni.
Music Director Dr. Tom Hammett said, “Roy Treiyer is a crowning jewel in our music ministry, being one of the most expressive, creative, and musical pianists in the greater Chattanooga area.  It was a wonderful set of circumstances that brought Roy into our church including his work with the Symphony Chorus when I sang the Brahms German Requiem with them a couple of seasons ago, and Roy’s popular duet performances with local composer Ethan McGrath (who by the way is abroad, studying composition at Robinson College, Cambridge, UK.)  I could not have been more thrilled with Roy’s acceptance of our offer of the position at Brainerd Pres.”
Mr. Treiyer’s first week of service included accompaniment of Shawn Kirchner’s arrangement of “Unclouded Day,” and Victor Johnson’s “Jesus Walked This Lonesome Valley.”  His improvisational setting of a medley based on “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus” evoked inspired tears from a number of listeners in the congregation, officials said.
