Remembering Richard Brode
Our Beloved Music Minister
Words cannot describe the shock of the passing of our beloved Richard on September 25, 2020 after he was tragically hit by a SUV in Times Square. His music soared through the St. Matthew Trinity sanctuary for nearly 20 years. No one who saw or heard him play will forget how he pounced on keys, pushed and pulled valves, and leapt on the pedals of the original 1877 Jardine Organ in the loft creating an awe-inspiring sound ever since he had become music minister in 2001.
In remembrance of Richard’s life, any charitable donations may be made to the St. Matthew Trinity “Music Ministry” fund:

Richard had a deep appreciation and love for St. Matthew Trinity and it was obvious how much he enjoyed playing the organ and piano. We all loved him too, and he will be missed beyond words.
