Our Music Director
David Daugherty joined the Old Stone family in March 2019. Originally from western Pennsylvania, David is a lifelong Presbyterian with decades of experience in music ministry. He previously served as Director of Music at the Northmont United Presbyterian Church in Pittsburgh, where he directed the chancel choir, taught music enrichment classes, and established a special handbell choir for church youth. At OSC, David is our principle organist and choir director and leads all music-related programming.
A blend of professional singers and congregational volunteers, the Old Stone Choir is known for a longstanding tradition of fine choral music. Music Director David Daugherty provides special music for all services during the year and leads the choir in worship each Sunday. During Christmas and Easter, the choir presents special cantatas, oratorios, and major choral works to complement the spirit of the season. Since Old Stone is Cleveland’s historic church with a contemporary spirit, the choir is also often accompanied by guitar, congas, and other contemporary instruments.
Installed in 1977, Old Stone’s unique organ was built by Cleveland’s world-famous Holtkamp Organ Company. The instrument employs mechanical action and has three manuals, 42 stops, and two enclosed divisions. The ornate casework built around the organ dates back to an 1895 instrument built by William A. Johnson.
Our adult choir rehearses on most Thursday evenings from 7 to 9pm as well as 9am on Sunday mornings before service. Auditions are scheduled for new members wishing to join.
