Those familiar with Peter Fyfe, who died in 2016, and wife Lois, who died in 2014, knew how generous they were as artists and champions of liturgical music. Peter spent 35 years as the organist and choirmaster at Christ Church in downtown Nashville and taught for 40 years as an adjunct organ professor at Blair School of Music at Vanderbilt University. He always worked closely with Lois, his partner in life and music, who herself was busy as proprietor of the Lois Fyfe Music company in Green Hills.
While alive they both established endowments – Peter at Blair and Lois at The Ohio State University. The Fyfes also created a trust that was to be divided among 10 organizations following Peter’s death, with The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee as one of the benefiting organizations. The gift to The Foundation has been used to create an Unrestricted Impact Fund, to be used to distribute grant awards to areas of need in the community.
