Music is a very important part of the Episcopal Church

(particularly here in Thousand Oaks / Conejo Valley, at St. Patrick's Episcopal Church)

We usually have two services and both include music, either accompanied by organ / piano or including the parish choir.  We try to provide a welcome environment for musicians and vocalists to share their skills and we have ongoing  relationships with various performers as well as connections to the music department at California Lutheran University.  Throughout the year St. Patrick's hosts various events sharing a variety of musical styles and arrangements.

Dr. Eric Kinsley  -  California Lutheran University Profile

Eric is a very talented musician and St. Patrick's is very fortunate he decided to join us in 2008.  Along with his own talents, he often connects with other talented musicians and vocalists to enhance our music during services or provide special music events.  His connections with California Lutheran University have also often provided us with young music talents from the CLU music department ranging from vocalists to bag pipers.  

Eric's doctorate is on the harpsicord.
