Lisa's mother was the organist at St. Mark's in the 1960's.   A classically trained musician and music teacher, Lisa was not originally an organist.  However, when we desperately needed a person to play the fine Hook organ at St. Mark's, Lisa volunteered to take lessons and has become the regular organist.
