John Ranney, Organist 1965-1985
Lindy Collins, Director of Music 1963-1965
Frank Pooler, Director of Music 1965-1972
Mr. Collins was followed by Frank Pooler, the outstanding director of Choral Studies at CSULB. Frank brought some of his college singers in to augment our forces. Much of our fine music library can be attributed to his purchases during his tenure here. It was during this time that the CSULB Winterfest was held in our sanctuary.
The first evening concerts planned by our church took place in the 1960s. One such program in 1963 featured duo pianists, Betty Allen and Virginia Mountney (a CSULB professor), and Frank Allen, tenor and Mary Breuer, soprano.
