Music Director - Kirsten Lysen

Kirsten is a native Washingtonian and has studied music through most of her life. She started taking piano lessons from the organist at her childhood church at age seven and continued through high school. She continued to study piano, voice, choral education, and music theory while attending Pacific Lutheran University, so it was a natural transition for Kirsten to go into music ministry.

At Advent, Kirsten directs and accompanies the choir, plans and plays service music, and coordinates other musical endeavors throughout the year such as our Christmas Cantata and Lenten services. She welcomes any and all musical gifts and values the time and energy of all who are involved in our volunteer, non-audition music program.

Kirsten is currently singing soprano with The Esoterics (an a cappella vocal ensemble in Seattle), playing piano with The Purple Passion Swing Band, and playing keys and singing with her cover band The Late Late Risers. She lives in Mountlake Terrace with her husband Chris and their cat Tribble.
