Choral Director and Music Coordinator
Eli Sauls is a proud graduate of Mansfield University where he carries his B.A. in Liberal Studies and his minor in Music. He is also a brother of the Beta Omicron chapter of Phi Mu Alpha.
Throughout his time at Mansfield, Eli has had the opportunity to dabble in various aspects of music including: musical theater, vocal jazz, opera, choral directing, and teaching individual voice lessons. Some of his favorite roles in theater include: Jesus (Godspell), Japheth (Children of Eden), Jack (Into the Woods), and Leaf Coneybear (25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee). Some of his more notable experiences include participating in master classes with Rob Fisher, performing in Candide featuring John Lithgow during Leonard Bernstein’s centennial celebration at Carnegie Hall, as well as working with Actor’s Equity members including Dan Sharkey in a run of Bridges of Madison County.
Eli is also a semi-recent addition to the Lancaster Symphony Choir. Every First Friday in Lancaster, you can find Eli singing at the Saint James Episcopal Church on Duke Street under the direction of Dr. William Wright.
During his free time, Eli enjoys staying social online through gaming, going for the occasional jog outside, and continuing to expand upon his eagerness to learn. New to the church, Eli is excited to offer his abilities to both enhance worship and strengthen his skills as both choral director and musician.
