BarnumA choral director and composer, Eric William Barnum continues to seek new ground musically. Working with choirs of all types and styles, his collaborative leitmotif endeavors to provide intensely meaningful experiences for singers and audiences.

Barnum holds a DMA in Choral Conducting from the University of Washington, under the direction of Dr. Geoffrey Boers.  He has an advanced degree in conducting from Minnesota State University, primary study with Dr. David Dickau, as well as BAs in Composition and Vocal Performance from Bemidji State University.  He has frequently appeared as a conductor and clinician across the United States, and has had the opportunity to work with some of the most innovative minds in the choral field.

His voice and vision is gaining popularity around the globe with performances from choirs internationally. He continually composes for all choral ensembles, from professional to youth choirs, and has received numerous awards and prestigious grants such as a Bush Foundation Artist Fellowship and a McKnight Foundation Grant. He has also held residencies with such ensembles as Choral Arts (Seattle), The Rose Ensemble, Kantorei (Denver), Coro Vocal Artists, as well as with many high schools and collegiate choirs.  "Life Stories," a CD of his work released in 2014, was a finalist for the American Prize in Choral Performance.
