Jo Ruth Capoccioni, Music Director

Jo's primary instrument is the piano, which her mother, Willa (formerly music director at Trinity), taught her to play at a very, very early age.She began teaching at Peet JHS in Cedar Falls in June 1977; she just recently retired. From the age of 14, she has been a church organist, either in Reinbeck at the UCC church or here Trinity, where she is the music director as well. She directs both our Chancel Choir and Chime Choir, and always welcomes new members to join either or both. She feels very passionately that music is an important part of our liturgy and hopes to encourage the congregation to participate in singing or playing during services.

In her spare time, Jo enjoys knitting and has created a wonderful line of themed scarves and hats, which she bases primarily on movie stars such as Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, and Lucille Ball. Jo has been a member of Trinity for a long time; in the past she has served on vestry as Senior Warden.
