About Andrew Sheranian
In August of 2010, Andrew Sheranian took up the post of Organist and Master of Choristers at the Parish of All Saints, Ashmont in Boston, an Anglo-Catholic church known for its commitment to excellence in liturgy and music. The position at Ashmont includes recruiting, training and conducting the Choir of Men and Boys, as well as playing the C.B. Fisk organ (Opus 103) for Masses and Evensongs. Before starting work in Boston, Mr. Sheranian was employed for seven years as the Organist and Choirmaster at Christ’s Church, in Rye, New York, a position which included working with a large semi-professional adult choir, as well as a choir of boys and girls.
Prior to his appointment in Rye, Mr. Sheranian was enrolled at Yale University through the Institute of Sacred Music, where he completed his Master of Music degree. While enrolled at Yale, Mr. Sheranian was engaged as Fellow in Church Music at Christ Church New Haven, where he worked with Martin Jean and Robert Lehman. His undergraduate training was completed at the New England Conservatory of Music, under the tutelage of William Porter. As a student in Boston, he worked with Michael Kleinschmidt as Assistant Organist at All Saints, Ashmont. He has given solo recitals at Boston’s Old West and Old South Churches, Busch Hall at Harvard University, St. Mary the Virgin and St. Thomas Church Fifth Avenue in New York City, Woolsey Hall at Yale University and on Temple Square in Salt Lake City. In February of 2006, Mr. Sheranian undertook a concert tour of Japan, where he played solo recitals at Suntory Hall in Tokyo, and Minato Mirai Hall in Yokohama. This season, in addition to playing here in Essex, he has given solo recitals at the Cathedral of the Madeleine in Salt Lake City, Methuen Memorial Music Hall in Massachusetts, the Cathedral of the Incarnation in Garden City, New York, and at Trinity Church, Copley Square in the City of Boston.
In addition to his church and concert engagements, Mr. Sheranian is involved as a member of the Association of Anglican Musicians, and has served as a Regional Chair of that organization. He is currently serving on the Board of Directors of the Royal School of Church Music in America.
