Andrzej Zahorski

Andrzej Zahorski has been the director of music of St. Anselm Parish in St. Louis, MO for many years. He studied music at the F. Chopin National Academy of Music in Warsaw, Poland, majoring in organ performance. He continued to study organ in Grenoble and Bordeaux, France. Andrzej has been featured as a soloist at several international festivals and organ music concert series in Poland, France, Switzerland, Germany, Spain and the United States, and was awarded the prestigious Medal of Honor of the City of Bordeaux.

After immigrating to the USA he undertook additional studies in music theory and history at Stanford University where he obtained his doctoral degree. After his graduate studies he taught music theory and organ at the University of California at Santa Cruz and worked as a musician in several churches in the San Francisco Bay Area. In particular, he was a musical coach of a Bay Area Gregorian Chant group Exaudi nos. While in the Bay Area, Andrzej participated in a Gregorian Chant study program under a nationally-acclaimed chant specialist, Scott Turkington.

Andrzej Zahorski created Vox Fidentium ensemble under a patronage of St. Anselm Parish as a response to a call for the preservation of sacred music. Its first concert took place in May 2022. The group also provides special music for some solemn liturgies celebrated at the Abbey Church.
