Ted Munn is Minister of Worship, Music, Media and organist at Avondale United Methodist Church and the Artistic Director of the Jacksonville Masterworks Chorale. He is a graduate of Westminster Choir College of Rider University in Princeton, NJ, where he studied choral technique with James Jordan, Allen Crowell, and Melanie Jacobson. While a member of the Westminster Symphonic Choir, he had the opportunity to sing with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, and the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra. He was also a member of the Westminster Singers, a group that specialized in lighter musical fare and jazz, and he rang with the Westminster Handbell Choir. After receiving his Masters of Sacred Music degree from Westminster, he has worked as choirmaster at churches around the country, including Los Angeles and Atlanta. He has been the Minister of Music and Worship at Avondale United Methodist Church since 1998, where he has led a well-rounded program of children’s choirs, handbell choirs, praise bands, and traditional choral ensembles.

When he is not leading music, he is busy at home with Reggie, his husband of twenty-three years, and his seventeen year old son, Dylan. Four rescued dogs and a rescued cat are also a part of the family. He is a big fan of Broadway musicals and tries to get to NYC as often as he can. Ted also loves to travel and hopes to travel the world again as soon as the COVID pandemic is a thing of the past.
