Jodi Hitzhusen

Jodi is the music world’s version of a renaissance woman—classically trained soprano, accomplished pianist, commissioned composer, inspiring teacher, riveting performer. She moves easily between styles of music, both in her performing and composing. In 2005, Jodi became Village Church’s Director of Music for First Worship, an intergenerational, participatory service that uses a mix of musical styles. Jodi leads the singing while accompanying on piano or percussion instruments. She also provides opportunities for congregation members to use their musical talents during services, both as soloists and in one of the five instrumental and vocal groups she directs.

Jodi’s music has taken her all across the United States, as well as to Canada, England, Scotland, France, Germany, and the Philippines. She performs both as a soloist and with the Voci Angelica Trio, a world folk music group whose goal is to promote cultural understanding. In addition to her work at the church, Jodi teaches 30-40 private voice and piano students per week. Jodi completed a Master of Music at New England Conservatory in 2005. She graduated summa cum laude from Evangel University in 2003 with a B.A. in Music and English, and was honored as the most outstanding graduate in both fields. Most recently, Jodi was awarded an Emerging Artists Grant from the Saint Botolph Foundation in Boston.

Jodi is married to David Cahill, a real estate agent and competitive runner who is also a youth advisor at Village Church. When she isn’t making music, Jodi loves to travel, dance, garden, cook, eat great food, and fill up her social calendar with all the amazing people in her life. She recently took up indoor rock climbing and is enjoying the new physical challenge.
