Organ music in church is an adjunct to prayer, and playing hymns on the organ is central to worship, because "who sings, prays twice.”  The organist's role has been an avocation for Kevin since he was 16 years old, and it continues today. On a personal note, variety, diversity, change and adaptability enhances the flavor of living, and such are central guiding principles for Kevin.
