Eric Stark '88 – Creating a Buzz in the Music World

Eric Stark '88

Eric Stark ’88 has two seemingly full time jobs.  He’s an Associate Professor of Music in the Jordan College of Fine Arts at Butler.  In addition, he conducts the Butler Chorale and the Butler Madrigal Singers.   Seems like more than enough…except for Eric.

Stark is also the Artistic Director of the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir and is building quite an international reputation.  According to our own Professor Larry Bennett, at the recent conference of the American Musicological Society, Eric conducted the Rachmaninoff Vespers Service for a huge crowd and got rave reviews from the conference participants.

Well done Eric!

  1. Hi Tom,

    Thanks for the shout out! The Rachmaninoff was a blast, and it was especially great to perform for the scholars from the Musicology and Music Theory gathering, including Larry Bennett. We’ve just concluded our most recent concerts, Festival of Carols, featuring a world premiere of a work “Quem Pastores Laudavere” written for us by Michigan composer Daniel J. Knaggs. And I’m pleased to say that fellow alum Andy Price (I think ’85) is a member of the board of directors of the Symphonic Choir.

    Happy Holidays to all!
