Dr. Jaeyong Lee
Jaeyong Lee joined the Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in 2016. He currently serves as Choir Director/Organist at the OSLC while he teaches Intro to Music, Music History, Music Composition and Applied Piano lessons at Texas College.
Jaeyong is originally from Busan, South Korea, born and raised in a Buddhist family. He is a God-fearing man who has converted to Christianity from Buddhism by calling as he believes. Since he was baptized in 1997, he has been an active church musician as a choir member, cantor, pianist/keyboardist, organist, and choir director. He thoroughly enjoys serving the church with volunteer community musicians.
Jaeyong was granted the Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Texas Tech University in 2014. His doctoral research is over the music of the Spanish composer Manuel Infante (1883-1958) who is mostly overlooked by musicologists in the history of music. Jaeyong’s research interests derive from rare repertoire in piano literature, various ethnic groups in classical music repertoire, and Gregorian chant. He also holds a Masters of Music degree in Piano Performance and Pedagogy from the Northwestern State University in Louisiana.
