Dr. Ernest Ersfeld was a member of the Nutley Music Department faculty from the early 1950s until his retirement in 1984 where he completed his career as Coordinator of Music. 


During his tenure in Nutley he was very instrumental in developing what the music department is now today, serving as the director of all music ensembles until the appointment of Mr. Lester Hrbek as Band Director and Mr. Raymond Kohere as Choir Director in 1956.

He was an integral part of music advocacy in Nutley both as Director of Music Education in the school system and within the larger community as the Conductor of the Nutley Symphony Orchestra.
