"Where there is no vision, the people perish..." Proverbs 29:18
Patrick P. Lundy is a native of Thomasville, Georgia, where he received his early childhood education. He began his music ministry by playing the piano at the First Missionary Baptist Church in Thomasville before his feet could touch the pedals. During his adolescence, he was allowed to work with church choirs and choral groups including The Thomasville Music and Drama Troupe and became a charter member of The Georgia Mass Choir. In 1985, Patrick relocated to Washington, DC, and matriculated at Howard University, from which he was awarded a degree in Music Business with a concentration in Management and Voice. While at Howard University, Patrick assisted the renowned Dr. J. Weldon Norris with the Howard University Choir and served as Assistant Director of the Howard University Gospel Choir
under the direction of the incomparable Arphelius Paul Gatling, III. In addition, Patrick served at several churches in the Washington Metropolitan Area including serving as Minister of Music at Ebenezer A.M.E. Church in Fort Washington, Maryland. Patrick has also served on the faculty of Eastern Senior High School where he worked with the esteemed Dr. Joyce Garrett and the internationally acclaimed Eastern High School Gospel Choir. He has assisted annually in training and conducting youth and adult choirs for nationally televised network and PBS specials including Kennedy Center
Honors, Christmas In Washington, The Memorial Day Concert and A Capitol Fourth. Patrick has been blessed to minister and appear with a virtual “Who’s Who” in gospel and secular artists. He has travelled extensively, both nationally and internationally. He is a member of the Gospel Music Workshop of America, founded by the late Rev. Dr. James Cleveland and the recipient of numerous honors and awards. In May of 1994, one of Patrick’s visions became reality when he founded The Ministers of Music, a dynamic community choir consisting of choir directors, ministers of music, soloists, music educators and ordained ministers of the gospel. The group has been quite well-received, has released eight CDs, and will be celebrating their 25th Anniversary in November 2019. Under Patrick’s direction, the Choir has been an integral part of several Presidential inauguration and Congressional Black Caucus events, has travelled throughout the world and represented the United States at the World’s Fair in Lisbon, Portugal. In the fall of 2013, Patrick realized another vision with the launching of Patrick Lundy & The Ministers of Music – Georgia Connection, another outstanding aggregation. He is in demand throughout the country as a choral director and workshop clinician. Most recently, Patrick was conferred an Honorary Doctor of Sacred Music degree by the Wayland Baptist Theological Seminary, during its Fall Academic Convocation in Richmond, Virginia. Patrick currently serves as Director, Christian Fine Arts at the Reid Temple AME Church, Glenn Dale, Maryland, where Rev. Mark E. Whitlock, Jr. is Senior Pastor and “Sweetheart of Gospel” Myrna Summers is Senior Minister of Music. He is married to the former Joyce N. Spears, an accomplished classical soloist, who performs with the Washington National Opera and is a Vocal Instructor at the
Levine School of Music.
