Giovanni Voltaggio



Giovanni studied Music Theory & Composition at the University of Minnesota and the University of Texas at Austin. He began his organist career while in high school, and has held positions at many churches since. He was organist at Bethany UMC in the late 1980’s and returned in 2018.  

He finds orchestrating, arranging, and composing to be fulfilling activities. He’s also a piano technician. Psychology and some amount of philosophy are strong interests. Attending recitals and lectures are a favorite pastime. (But he’s been known to watch silly You Tube videos too.)
