On Sunday, March 11, 2018, Good Shepherd Church welcomed Mrs. Elena Bowes as our Guest Pianist. She has played the piano for Good Shepherd Church numerous Sundays before and as members know, she plays the Piano beautifully.
Mrs. Bowes is married and has two children. Before immigrating to the United States in 2003, she was classically trained in piano in her home town of Mosco, Russia.
Elena has a degree from the University of New Orleans where she majored in music, the Piano. She works full time teaching piano at the Lafargue Piano Music School located on Veterans Hwy., in Metairie.
While Mrs. Bowes is committed to helping Good Shepherd Church as a guest musician whenever her schedule allows, she has advised Pastor Randall Graf that she is not interested in the Music Director Position at Good Shepherd Church. We, however, always welcome her gift of music at our Sunday worship services!
