Stephen Parsons is a member of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in San Jose, CA. He is an ordained chanter, and the church organist, so he can be found there most Sundays.

While traditional Orthodox music is vocal only, the Greek Orthodox in America, particularly, have adopted multi-part choirs and organs to accompany them. Because of the lateness of the organ's use, there is not a large repertoire of Orthodox organ music as there is among Protestant and Roman Catholic churches.
