Jack Murphy is an active performer and educator originally from the Fox Valley area.
Familiar with the musical life at FUMC, Jack has worked as a Lawrence choral intern since the spring of 2018. As a tenor, he regularly sings for Sunday worship and performed in the Jubliate Deo masterwork and 2018 Festival of Carols. He also has worked with the Sanctuary Choir, Sonshine Singers and Bass Clef. Jack is currently a senior at Lawrence University, where he is pursuing a Bachelor of Music in Music Education. He maintains an active performance schedule as well, having participated in several LU opera and musical productions, including The Marriage of Figaro, Mass, Little Shop of Horrors, and Pippin. As a full-time gigging musician, Jack can be found playing with several bands in the community, including Vic Ferrari and Murphy’s Law, the latter of which he performs in with his two younger brothers. Jack recently had the opportunity to study abroad in Vienna, Austria in the fall of 2019 where he studied German and voice. During his time in Vienna, he participated in two concerts, performing selected works by J.S. Bach and Felix Mendelssohn. His skills as a director and educator also led him to directing a full-scale drive-in musical revue concert at St. Mary Central High School in Neenah, WI, an event that brought community members together through music amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. He also worked for Heid Music’s Rock University summer camp, working with middle- and high-schoolers in rock bands to write original music, prepare covers of wellknown songs and learn more about the music business.
Outside of his busy musical life, Jack enjoys biking, hiking, and reading. He immensely looks forward to stepping into this new role at First United Methodist Church!
