Quincy J. Dover

Quincy J. Dover is currently the Director of Music of Grace Episcopal Church, Massapequa, NY. He is a vibrant organist who is known for his different styles of playing the organ in its liturgical responsibilities. He is recognized for his ways of engaging people into liturgical music by his unique approach, showcasing his diversity in church music. ​Quincy was raised in the Episcopal Church and found his interest in the organ and liturgical music from an early age being brought to church every Sunday by his grandfather.

Hearing the organ play, he would imagine it was him playing by gliding his hands across the back of a pew. He then was put into piano lessons by his determined grandfather. He eventually started to pick up things on his own and playing hymns just by listening to them. At age 9 he started studying organ and started organ lessons but would sometimes drift off from them and teach himself. He has learned from musicians such as Dr. Albert Miller, Kurt Daisley, Gregory Eaton, and Dr. Wayne Barr at Tuskegee University. Although Quincy gives credit to the knowledgeable organists he’s learned with over the years, but he’s most proud of the natural gift God gave him. At 16, Quincy gained experience from playing in churches all over the tri-state area substituting for organists who were taking time off.


Before his appointment as Director of Music at Grace Church, Quincy has held four positions in four different Episcopal churches including Assistant Organist and Choir Director of St. George's Episcopal Church, Brooklyn, and Director of Music of St. Gabriel’s Episcopal Church, Brooklyn, the Church of St. Mark in Brooklyn, and Trinity - St. John in Hewlett, NY. He recently spent two years as the Director of Music of the historic Trinity Lutheran Church in Staten Island. Quincy has also directed and accompanied several special large choirs for many organizations and has lead music for many special occasions especially for the Diocese of Long Island.
