Sara’s sabbatical officially began on Sunday, May 5, and was preceded by a lovely catered meal send-off celebration for the parish the night before. This stunning portrait of Sara was created by Jeremy Dubow, a member of St. David’s as a gift to the parish, and was unveiled at the Sabbatical Send-Off dinner.

Meet our new Interim Music Director
After a wonderful process that left some participants asking: “can’t we just hire all three of them?” we have hired Ben Landsverk as our Interim Music Director. Ben is a composer, conductor and multi-instrumentalist born and raised in Portland. A graduate of Yale University, Ben has had a lifetime of experience with liturgical music, and has worked in the Episcopal Church for over 18 years, most recently at Portland’s Trinity Cathedral. As a musician, Ben specializes in finding and creating connectivity between current popular and traditional classical musical styles, and concertizes frequently on the local, national and international stage. His compositions, arrangements and recordings have been featured on National Public Radio, and critically acclaimed by such publications as Paste Magazine, Time Out New York, NPR Music and Downbeat Magazine. Ben is also active as a music educator, and is the director of Voices Unlimited – Portland’s flagship choir serving adults with developmental disabilities. Ben begins his work at St. David’s in May, although details are still in the works.
