As music director, John Wineglass works with the worship leader to bring glory to God through music throughout the church. A native Washingtonian, John Wineglass has performed in several orchestras and chamber ensembles both in the U.S. and abroad, performing his first viola concerto with the DC Youth Orchestra in 1984 at 11 years old. John has achieved numerous music accreditations, as well as three Emmy® Awards with seven nominations to date, and he has performed with many Grammy®-Award winning artists. His musical prowess and his passion for music have afforded him opportunities to perform on five continents and before every president since Ronald Reagan. John is a graduate of The American University (B.M.) and holds a master’s degree in Music Composition from New York University, studying with Justin Dello-Joio of the Julliard School. John coordinates our worship sets as well, and you will catch him onstage most Sunday mornings playing the keyboard, organ, violin, and occasionally even the accordion. His wife Denise is also a talented worship musician. John and Denise live on the Peninsula with their daughter Abbey.
