Congregation Etz Chaim

Community, Spirituality, and YOU

Please welcome Jason Hill as our new Music Coordinator!  Jason is originally from Muskogee, OK, but after attending graduate school at the Chicago Conservatory of Music and Seminary at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary at Northwestern University, he now lives in the Andersonville neighborhood of Chicago.

In addition to his passion for sacred music, Jason has been working as a musical theatre music director, pianist, and keyboardist for 20 years, including New York productions, national tours of Broadway shows, and professional regional theatre. Other career highlights include serving as Pianist in the Marine Band (MARFORPAC), Carnival Cruise Lines, and Women of Ireland.

Jason currently serves as the Staff Musician at Clarendon Hills Community Presbyterian Church, accompanying the choir and congregation on piano and organ.  In addition, Jason stays busy working in musical theatre in Chicagoland, doing social justice work, working out, biking, and being cat-dad to Skyler and Catain Jack Harkness.

Jason and the members of the adult choir would love to have you join them!  For more information, please send an email to cec.choir@congetzchaim.org.
