Interim Director of Music Hired!

We are pleased to announce the hiring of Eric Lane Barnes as Interim Director of Music for East Shore Unitarian Church!

Eric comes to us highly recommended and with a wonderful resumé. He is a composer, writer, lyricist, pianist, director, conductor, performer and advocate for LGBT rights. He was associate artistic director for Seattle Men’s Chorus and Seattle Women’s Chorus, a band member and composer for 14/48 Theatre Festivals, and more. You can learn more about Eric’s work on his website.

He is very enthusiastic about working with the quality music program we have here at East Shore and using his 20 hours per week to continue to grow our choir and music groups.

Eric will start working in August, and will take that time to absorb our music culture and get to know the staff and members. He has a prior commitment for September 10 (In-gathering), and will begin his regular worship schedule on September 17. Look for more details in the coming weeks about opportunities to join the choir. You can reach Eric by emailing him at music@esuc.org.

Please join us in welcoming Eric to East Shore!
