There have been some major changes at the Unitarian Church of Los Alamos this fall, including hiring Alicia Solomon as the new music director.
Solomon, a veteran soloist of the Santa Fe Opera, the Santa Fe Symphony, the Santa Fe Desert Chorale, and others, is the first professional musician to be hired by the church in its 53-year history.
In addition to directing the Adult Choir, overseeing the Children’s Choir volunteers, and organizing other volunteer musicians, she supplies piano and guitar accompaniment, as well as vocal solos, for worship services.
Previously, Solomon was a soloist for the Christian Science church in Santa Fe.
“Many churches in Los Alamos don’t have professional musicians, so I’ve had to commute,” she said. “I was very glad to see an ad for a local position, with a church and minister that I feel I can work well with.”
“It is wonderful to have a collaborative partner who understands the role of music in worship, and to see the congregation respond so positively to Alicia’s presence,” the Rev. John Cullinan said. “She’s adding to an already-growing energy in the congregation.”
