Congregation Etz Chaim
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congregation Etz Chaim is to be that place of compassion, growth and welcome that spiritual seekers crave. We endeavor to support the passions of Jews and those who align themselves with the Jewish community and to nurture the well-being of all peoples.
