Bio

Eric Banks has garnered significant acclaim as one of the most creative choral composers and directors in the United States for his unwavering commitment to new music for unaccompanied voices. In 1992, he founded The Esoterics, a professional-caliber chamber chorus of volunteers in Seattle whose mission is to perform and perpetuate contemporary choral music beyond the scope of the established a cappella canon. He has been a visiting scholar at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Stockholm and Swedish National Radio as well as at the Cama Oriental Institute in Mumbai, India. In 2010, Banks received the Dale Warland Commission Award for a choral cycle based on climate-change statistics.
