Charles Lindsey, Jr.
CHARLES LINDSEY, JR. is a Richmond, Virginia, native who grew up under the influence of his mother, Bettie Hazelhurst Lindsey, a longtime Richmond area organist and church music director, as well as her sister, Jane Hazelhurst Reeves, longtime organist of his home church. At the age of four, Charles decided he wanted to play the organ and lead church music.
Currently, Charles is organist and choirmaster at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Bristol Parish, Petersburg, Virginia. Although the organ, choral directing, and sacred music remain his primary musical passions, Charles has other musical interests that are utilized throughout the Greater Richmond community.
Beyond the church, Charles is very active as a collaborative pianist and vocal coach. During the academic year, Charles serves as a full-time pianist for the voice department of Virginia Commonwealth University. Additionally, he is often sought as a piano and organ teacher, a performer in venues featuring early music and harpsichord, and concert organist. Charles holds the Bachelor of Music degree in organ performance from the University of Richmond, and has studied choral conducting, vocal coaching, vocal pedagogy, organ, organ improvisation, harpsichord, and early music with musical and pedagogical luminaries in Richmond, Washington, D.C., and New York City.
