How shall we sing the LORD’s song in a strange land?
– Psalm 137:4 (KJV)

Hi there!  Thanks for coming to my website.  The quote from the psalms expresses the general sentiment (read: verse taken out of context) of this blog, devoted to liturgy, theology through music, and experiencing the divine through art.

In case you don’t know me (read: are not my mom), I’m Adam Kurihara.  I’m 27 years old.  I love Jesus, and it was Bach who has shown that to me the clearest.

I work as Director of Music at Trinitarian Congregational Church in Wayland, MA.

That’s me ———————————>

I most recently graduated from a Sacred Music program (emphasis in Choral Conducting) at Boston University’s School of Theology.  I sang in the choirs at the College of Fine Arts.

Prior to moving to Boston, I studied conducting and composition at UC Santa Barbara, where I co-conducted the Men’s and Women’s Choruses and taught first and second year musicianship classes.  I also directed the chorus at Cold Spring Elementary and the seasonal choirs at Santa Barbara Community Church, where I attended.  In addition to these conducting endevors, I sang baritone in the chancel choir at All-Saints by the Sea Episcopal Church and in the UCSB Chamber Choir.

When not making music, I enjoy reading The Sun magazine, listening to This American Life, cooking, biking, and reading many many blogs like this one.

When I grow up I want to infuse my talent in music with my heart for worship to renew music, liturgy, and corporate worship in the Protestant church.  This blog is dedicated to discussion on that subject.
