Sharon Goodrum
Music Coordinator

I am the Music Coordinator here at FUMC.  My primary responsibility is to work with our choir directors, our organist, and other musicians to see that our worship services are undergirded and enhanced by the music we offer.  My degrees are from The University of Kansas (B. Mus) and Northwestern University (M. Sacred Music).  I am a former choir director and organist and continue to be active as a professional accompanist.

What is the best part of your job?

The best part of my job is being a part of our very fine staff – both working with them and learning from them.

What is your favorite book?

My favorite book is just about anything written by Andrea Barrett, but especially Ship Fever, Voyage of the Narwahl, and Servants of the Map.

What are you currently reading?

I am currently re-reading Home by Marilynne Robinson and expect to move on to Lila.

What is your favorite thing to do outside of work?

So – it may be obvious that my favorite thing to do is read a fine book, but I love preparing music for a variety of occasions, and I spend a good deal of my free time at the piano.
