Please feel free to call our Director of Music, Simon Holt, in the church office for more information on any of the choirs or with new ideas!
Simon's personal phone is 860-705-3037. Underlined material to be updates by Simon Our church houses a remarkable collection of works of art, some of it dating back to the early 1900's when local artists of the Old Lyme Impressionist School painted the Meetinghouse to help raise the money needed to rebuild following a tragic and historic fire which burned the Meetinghouse to the ground. Periodically our Board of Music and the Arts conducts tours of the collection, on Sunday mornings. The board also hosts an Art Show bi-annually when church members gather their own works of art to show and share their talent. SIMON HOLT, Director of Music

"'Madame Butterfly' was Salt Marsh Opera's first ever opera production and we're thrilled to bring it back to southeast connecticut to celebrate our 15th Anniversary," said Salt March Artistic Director Simon Holt, who described the opera.
The story takes place in Nagasaki, Japan, he said. Young Cio-Cio San, known as Butterfly, adores her husband-to-be, U.S. Naval Officer B.F. Pinkerton. Though their wedding night is filled with tender bliss, Butterfly has no idea Pinkerton wants to marry 'a real American bride' when he returns to the states. Poor Butterfly subsists on the departed Pinkerton's vows for three lonely years, longing for his return," he said. "But when the day arrives, Butterfly's dreams are ... well, you just have to come and find out!" Holt, the opera company's founder, and the executive director of the United Theatre in Westerly, has conducted numerous operas, operettas and musicals throughout his career, and has recorded and produced several CDs. He is currently the director of music at the First Congregational Church of Old Lyme. As founder of Salt Marsh Opera, he has been the company's music director since its inception in 2000, and became artistic director in 2005 and general manager in 2014. Prior to moving to the U.S. in 1999, Holt was director of music at Bristol Cathedral School, the Bristol Cathedral School Choral Society, Bromsgrove Choral Society and the Birmingham University Chorus and Orchestra, with venues including Bristol Cathedral, Birmingham's Symphony Hall and The Royal Albert Hall in London. As an organist, Holt has performed in Westminster Abbey, York Minster, Selby Abby, St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, Reading Town Hall and the Cathedrals of Norwich, Carlisle, Portsmouth, Wells, Canterbury, Rochester and Gloucester. He has toured extensively in Europe performing at St. Mark's in Venice, Sacré Coeur and Notre Dame in Paris, and venues in Holland, Austria, Germany, the Czech Republic, Belgium and Switzerland. Holt has appeared several times on British and American radio and television.
