Bradford Thompson, a DuPage county native and lifelong Lutheran, began his work as a church musician in 2001, and has served in a parish ever since.
While studying at Valparaiso University, Bradford majored in Church Music, studied piano, voice, and organ. Initially a pianist, while nearing the end of his undergraduate studies, Bradford shifted his primary focus to the study of voice.
In 2010, Bradford went on to pursue his Master of Music and Performer Diploma at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, majoring in Vocal Performance. During this time, Bradford was blessed to serve as Director of Music to Greene County United Methodist Church, choral contractor and pianist to the Columbus Philharmonic, and freelance accompany within the music school.
Bradford is thrilled to have accepted Grace's call, and to be serving in the parish where his grandmother was confirmed, and where his parents were married.
