Music at St. Andrews

Brief Bio of CHARLES RUS


A native of Grand Rapids, Michigan, Charles received degrees from the Eastman School of Music, the University of Michigan, and, as a Fulbright Scholar, the Folkwang Hochschule für Musik in Essen, Germany.  He is a published composer of liturgical music and has worked with organ builders and played with symphony orchestras including the San Francisco Symphony. He spent most of his career in San Francisco, and he now lives on Martha’s Vineyard as the über-happy parish musician at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Edgartown.
