Minister of Music
A church musician since high school, Eric is thrilled to join the staff at St. Paul’s. As a pianist, he appears regularly with the National Symphony Orchestra and performs as principal pianist with the Washington Ballet Orchestra. He has been engaged by Alexandria Choral Society, Washington Performing Arts, Glimmerglass Festival, Minnesota Opera, Fort Worth Opera, and Palm Beach Opera, and has further experience as an educator working at the Seagle Music Colony and the Young Artists Training Programme at the New National Theatre in Tokyo. He is continuing in his fifth year as the pianist for Beth El Hebrew Congregation in Alexandria. Also an arts administrator, Eric comes to St. Paul’s after nearly six years as the General Manager and Assistant Executive Director of the American Youth Philharmonic Orchestras. Eric and his wife, Elizabeth, have attended St. Paul’s for nearly ten years; they were married and have had all three of their children baptized here. He looks forward to having an active role in refining the musical character of three distinct services at St. Paul’s while welcoming any musician that would like to participate.
