James Russell Brown deeply enjoys his ministry at St. Giles, which has a long tradition of musical and liturgical richness. Jim has served the parish as Director of Music and Organist since 1985. A graduate of Oberlin and New England Conservatory, he has performed in such major venues as National Cathedral and Harvard University; in August 2010 he served as organist for a week at Canterbury Cathedral along with the Northern Illinois University (NIU) Chamber Choir.

In 2008, Jim joined the faculty at NIU, teaching both organ and harpsichord, and is now also the Coordinator of Undergraduate Advising for the School of Music. He continues as the Chair of the Organ and Harpsichord Program at the Music Institute of Chicago.

I live in Buffalo Grove with my husband, Mark, and we have a son and daughter, Alex and Kristi, currently in college.  I am a lifelong Episcopalian, having grown up in Deerfield at St. Gregory’s Episcopal Church.  My family and I are active members there today.  I enjoy spending time with family and friends, volunteering, reading, singing, shopping, and keeping up with my home, including our two dogs. 

After graduating from college, and for approximately 30 years, I worked at Underwriters Labs in Northbrook doing various levels of support work for Conformity Assessment engineers.  In fact, that is where I met my husband who still works there.  After leaving UL in 2011, I began doing some of the office administration at St. Gregory’s as a part-time volunteer. 

I am or have been involved with many other activities at St. Gregory’s including Altar Guild, Flower Chairman, Vestry, Stewardship, and I recently joined the Choir.
