Jeffrey Blersch has been an organist since Peace Lutheran Church in Cincinnati, Ohio, appointed him at the young age of 8. Jeffrey decided to pursue his musical gifts as an organist and majored in organ performance and music education at the Oberlin College Conservatory of Music. He continued his education at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and earned his doctorate in musical arts and organ performance. Currently, he is an associate professor of music and the university organist at Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska, where he teaches all things organ.
