Roy Treiyer Joins Brainerd Presbyterian Music Staff

Monday, May 8, 2017

Brainerd Presbyterian Church welcomed their newest music staff member on Sunday at the 11:00 a.m. service.
 
Roy Treiyer was born in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, to a Christian family and was raised mostly in the United States and in Argentina.  He began piano studies at age 11, with his interest being centered in classical and sacred music.  Mr. Treiyer graduated with a double major in psychology and music education in Argentina.  In May 2014 he graduated from UTC with a masters in piano performance.  

Some of his accomplishments include 3rd prize at Andrews First International Piano Competition (2008), UTC Concerto Competition winner (2012), and UTC’s Arthur Rivituso Award winner (2013 and 2014).  Currently, Mr. Treiyer is an adjunct professor of piano at Covenant College and serves as rehearsal accompanist for the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera Chorus.  He enjoys creating arrangements of well-known hymns and has recorded two solo piano albums: Shine, Jesus Shine! (2012) and A Might Fortress Is Our God (2015).  

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.
 
Brainerd Presbyterian Church is located at 1624 Jenkins Road, just off of East Brainerd Road.  contemporary services begin at 9 a.m. and traditional services at 11 a.m.
