Bill Boland

Chapel Music Coordinator

A native of south St. Louis, and a graduate of the Washington University School of Architecture, I have worked as a registered architect in St. Louis for 40 years. I studied piano for 12 years, and have been a member of the St. Louis Symphony chorus.

A member of Manchester UMC for over 40 years, I was involved in the creation of Coventry Choir, serving for a while as the group’s director. I was a charter member of the One Voice contemporary worship team, and sang in the Chancel Choir for 15 years. I have played in the Vesper Bell Choir for about 20 years under the direction of my wife, Sherry.

While studying music orchestration and composition at the University of Missouri, I was asked to provide music for the Saturday evening chapel services. After accepting the position, I formed the Woods Mill Ensemble, and now arrange music for the weekly service.

I have two daughters, Becky and Patti, and between my wife and I, we have seven grandchildren. I continue to enjoy taking a variety of courses at UMSL.
