St. Peter Claver
Director of Music and Liturgy
(920) 457-9408, ext. 103
My name is Frederick Strassburger and I have been the Director of Music and Liturgy at Saint Peter Claver since June of 2007. I graduated from Benedictine University in Lisle, IL with a bachelor’s degree in Music Education in May of 1981. I then began teaching high school music at Saint Bede Academy in Peru, IL. In 1987 I graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a master’s degree in Music and Liturgy. Originally from Peoria, IL, I was a member of the Benedictine community of Saint Bede Abbey in Peru, IL from 1977-2007 before moving to Sheboygan.
Besides my ministry at Saint Peter Claver, I am also a composer of two Mass settings published by Liturgical Press. I also directs the German Concordia Singers in Sheboygan and also sing with the Sheboygan Symphony Chorus. In addition I also tune pianos, and give private instruction in piano, organ, guitar and voice.
Music has been a big part of my life from an early age and using music as a ministry to help people worship has always been a priority in my life.
