Pastor Rayburn interviews Mr. Ross Hauck. Mr. Hauck is a soloist in the Alliance of Christian Musicians (ACM) Festival Choir performing Handel’s Messiah today in our Evening Worship Service.

Hailed by the Seattle Times as “almost superhuman in musical effect,” Mr. Hauck maintains a busy and eclectic career, often specializing in both early and new music. This past year Mr. Hauck made concert debuts with the Phoenix Symphony, the Oregon Symphony, Grand Rapids Symphony, Orchestra Kentucky, the Lincoln Symphony, and the Chautauqua festivals in Boulder, Co and upstate New York. Other debuts included appearances with Les Voix Baroque in Montreal and “Celtic Crossings” countryside concerts with Apollo’s Fire in Cleveland.  Mr. Hauck is an adjunct professor of voice at Seattle University and a contributing faculty member at Cornish College of the Arts.

Mr. Hauck is the son of music educators, and grew up in the church.  As such, his true passion is the intersection of fine arts and faith, and he maintains a keen interest in history, culture, theology, and worship. He is a frequent soloist at church worship services, and often provides sacred concerts and creative presentations for ministries, non-profits, or Christian Colleges.  He also leads a monthly gathering of Christians involved in the arts called “artists at the arbor.”
