All Saints parishioner and founding member of the YellowJackets, Russell Ferrante’s first exposure to music came from his church, where his father was the choir director as well as being a frequent vocal soloist and having a vocal gospel quartet. He began piano lessons at the age of 9 with the expectation that one day he would be the church pianist … but his musical interests took him elsewhere.
Peter Erskine has played the drums since the age of four and is known for his versatility and love of working in different musical contexts. He appears on over 600 albums and film scores, and has won two Grammy Awards, plus an Honorary Doctorate from the Berklee School of Music (1992).
The Season of Advent marks the beginning of the new church year and the time of preparation for Christmas.
