John Kuzma has been Montview’s Minister of Music since 1987. He holds degrees from the Eastman School of Music and the University of Illinois, and as a Fulbright Scholar studied at the University of Copenhagen. Before coming to Denver he was music director of the American Boychoir (Princeton, NJ), the San Diego Chamber Orchestra and St. Paul’s Cathedral, San Diego. John has performed widely as a concert organist and is active as a composer. His compositions have been performed by the Colorado and Chicago Symphony Orchestras, many regional orchestras and choirs, in addition to many Colorado ensembles. In recent years he has renewed his childhood interest in Latin and Greek studies, and spends most of his non-musical-hours in efforts with classical authors and other reading. John’s wife since 1968, Bess, is a school administrator.
