J.P. Meder Project - I am doing research on J.P. Meder (John P. Meder). He was born Sept. 17, 1848 in Brunswick, Maine, and died March 1, 1908, in Carson City, Nev. He came to Carson City along with with his parents and other relatives in 1864 (1863?) when Nevada was still a territory. According to two of his obituaries in 1908, he was an accomplished musician, was involved in the theater in the Carson City, and served as organist of St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Carson City. It appears his primary business was as Freight Agent of the Virginia and Truckee Railroad in Carson City, but he also served as manager of the Carson City Opera House and directed amateur theater productions. I arranged his "Nevada State March" and "Hank Monk Schottish," and they were performed by the Carson City Symphony on June 18, 2006.


I am personally involved in a number of performances in and around Carson City and other parts of the State of Nevada, and you can check these out on my Performance schedule web page.
