Joey Fala, Organist and Architecture Student

I just saw on the Saturday morning show, that there are students at prestigious George Washington  University who have signed petitions supporting  exchanging an American citizen for an illegal immigrant!

You probably have also seen ‘on the street interviews” of  American students who know nothing about American history or politics.

In contrast, let me introduce you to Joey Fala,  a Renaissance man. I know nothing about Joey’s knowledge of history and /or politics but he is a dedicated student.  He is a very hardworking , focused young man who is a 5th year student in the Architecture school  and is also working simultaneously  on a Master’s degree in lighting! He will graduate in the spring with dual degrees from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where my husband teaches, also a fine university with a reputation for rigor.

Well you already know that that is not enough for Joey. He is also  a accomplished organist who is the choir director and organist at the First Presbyterian Church in Troy, and who quite regularly prepares and  gives organ recitals.  Take a few minutes to watch and listen to this elegant piece played with technical perfection! Watch for the running octaves in the pedal throughout the piece!

David was sorry that Joey was not able to go to India with the last group of students, but you can see Joey Fala  is quite busy and couldn’t be away for a semester !

Thanks Joey for being a millennial student  who is inspiring us all !
