Music Director - Anthony Young
“I believe everyone has a gift that must be heard.”
Anthony Young has served as Music Director for Unity of Lehigh Valley since 2014. He has also been a member of ULV since 2011.
Anthony started training in piano at age 7, added brass at age 11, added voice at age 14, added instrumental and vocal arranging at age 16 and conducting at age 18. Anthony also started Bible and religious training at age 5. “Thanks Mom and Dad”.
Anthony believes in creativity and using all resources. Unity of Lehigh Valley is blessed to own a Yamaha Clavinova (large computerized keyboard that can record and play music). To provide music for ULV, Anthony has chosen to record each song on a track to keep the music consistent and accurate each time. And it allows him to lead the music more by spirit than the notes on the printed page.
Anthony is a member of EmPower Music and Arts. a Unity supported community of new thought musicians and artists. He has attended their annual Positive Music Festival for several years. Anthony always loves to be part of the festival choir. https://www.empowerma.com/presskit/52057

I grew up in Unity! My siblings and I were baptized here, and though we moved away and stopped attending for a time I have always felt a connection with the core principles of Unity. I have a passion for teaching and guiding children. Working at Unity is and has been an honor and a blessing.
