Pianist and Choir Director

Luke Olivieri has directed music at St. Peter’s Presbyterian Church in Spencertown, NY, leading the choir, accompanying with piano, organ and guitar, arranging and composing, and continually developing the music library, since 2003. He was proud to be a part of the 250th anniversary celebration of the church.

In December of 2013 he began The Foundation for One Home which seeks to motivate people to take action in protecting the environment for all species by redirecting fossil-fuel corporations into clean, renewable energies. The first community event and concert for this purpose, titled
Songs of Unity, was held at St. Peter’s and focused on the challenges to communication we all face – a necessary prerequisite to take on the issues of our day.

He also teaches classical and jazz piano and folk guitar privately. Mr. Olivieri’s film scores have premiered at the Sundance Festival, and at festivals in Chicago, Los Angeles and Karlhsrue, Germany.
