The Church Choir

 

Current Organist, Kyle Brazauski

 

Retired Organist, Vima Le Jeune

Vima, now retired, was our organist at the Colebrook Congregational Church since 1989. She accompanied rehearsals for the Adult and the Children’s choirs.  She played the Sunday services as well as special music services at the church.  

The organ she performed on was built by Fritz Noack in 1964 and was presented to the church by John Ferris in 1990.  She also played at the Church in the Wildwood in North Colebrook, CT during the summer. 

A native of West Torrington, CT, Ms. Le Jeune graduated from Torrington High School and studied piano with Mrs. Greenwood, Mrs. Keyes, and Anna Michna. She studies organ with John Ferris. She comes from a family of organists; her mother was a church organist, her sister is a church organist, and two of her daughters are organists in Connecticut and Alaska.



Previously she was the organist at the Barkhamsted Congregational Church in Barkhamsted, CT.  She was also the manager of the Nutrition Program for the Winsted Senior Center, where she often played the piano for group singing by the members.

She is an experienced painter, both of oils and water colors and has taken classes in these art forms at Northwest Connecticut Community College and the Litchfield County Art Association of which she is a member; both are in Winsted, CT.  

She is the mother of nine children who reside from Connecticut to Alaska.  She now lives in New Hampshire.
