Choral singers invited to sing at memorial service for retired Shorecrest choral director Neil Lieurance

Sunday, March 23, 2014

Neil Lieurance, longtime Shorecrest High School choral director and a member of the Washington Music Educators Association Hall of Fame, died Sunday at age 70 at his Shoreline home after a long illness.

Neil joined Shoreline Schools in 1965 and spent his entire career at Shorecrest, primarily teaching choral music, but also English and Special Education. He retired in 1993.

Neil's work as a music teacher contributed greatly to the ongoing pride and tradition of strong music education in the Shoreline School District.   His choirs at Shorecrest were repeatedly awarded the highest recognition and honors including "Best in the Northwest," and made several trips abroad.

Neil leaves a legacy of accomplishments that continue to enhance and sustain choral music in our schools and our community.

According to a notice in The Seattle Times:

A public Memorial will be held Sunday, March 30, 3:00pm, at Shorecrest High School Commons, 15343 25th Ave NE, Shoreline, WA 98155. 
All experienced choral singers are encouraged to join in singing together with Neil's friends in the Choir for the Memorial. The only rehearsal will be held in the Shorecrest Commons on the day of the Memorial, March 30, from 1:15 to 2:30. Songs that were favorites of Neil have been chosen. They will be easy to learn and appropriate for the memorial. Sheet music will be provided at the rehearsal.
