Daniel is called to be the church musician which means that his gifts and training in music performance and leadership help our whole community to access the sacred through music at CGS. He leads music in Sunday morning worship and is finding ways to make music a part of our other activities and events.
Daniel came to CGS in 2015, having returned to his native Bay Area after far too long in Southern California. While he was there he served as the tenor section leader/soloist at Westwood Hills Christian Church and then 13 years as the music and choir director at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Long Beach. Daniel has been active as a music director, conductor, pianist, singer, actor, arranger and arts administrator for over twenty years; he is currently the Executive Director of 42nd Street Moon, a musical theatre company in San Francisco, and does freelance musical direction for theatre companies throughout the Bay Area. Daniel is blessed to have the love and support of his wife Rebecca and son Joshua.

Rey is CGS's choir director. His gifts and experience in leading choirs aids the people at CGS to sing together. He currently leads two choirs at CGS: the CGS Choir, and the Keynote Vocal Group.
Rey’s deep interest for music started at 17, when he started singing in his local church choir in the Philippines. This interest grew into passion, took private piano and music lessons, and got more involved in choral singing and started arranging music. In 1991, he started serving as the music and choir director of Bagong Ilog Unida Evangelical Church in Pasig City, Philippines, and eventually became the president and choir director of Koro ng Unida, the national choir organization of Unida Evangelical Church. Since coming to the US in 1999, Rey has been actively involved in different community choirs, and feels specially blessed to continue to serve and make music in faith and love of God at CGS. It’s his hope and prayer that music will continue to help us through our walk and growth in faith, and bring joy in times of celebration or comfort during challenges.
