As a member of Soroptimist International of Roxborough, PA, Linda helps to improve the lives of women and girls locally and internationally.

Laurie Ciasullo

Laurie has been singing as long as she can remember, in churches and high school choirs.  It was not until 2013, however, that she that began to explore a more complex singing environment with The Choristers and has never looked back.  She credits fellow Choristers Joe and Leigh DeTato for finally convincing her to try out, it was not an easy task!  Laurie counts being “hip-deep” in a complicated piece of music with her fellow singers as one of the most energizing and rewarding experiences in her busy life.  Laurie manages a very busy office of 100 people and lives with her husband, (and Chorister Usher) Nick.  They have a beautiful daughter Mia, who is teaching French in high school, and a large, vibrant extended family who keeps life perpetually fun.

Eileen Erinoff

Eileen has been singing with choral groups since grade school. She first sang alto with the Choristers from 2001 - 2004 and after a hiatus for graduate school rejoined the group in 2008. Eileen first learned of the group from fellow Choristers working at ECRI Institute, a non-profit healthcare research agency where she works as a research librarian. In addition to singing, Eileen's hobbies include jewelry making and reading. She lives with her husband, son, and three cats in Souderton PA.

After singing with other choirs, she joined the Soprano section of The Choristers in 2008 and the Board in 2012. Kathie and her husband Hugh have two daughters and are proud grandparents of two wonderful grandchildren. She is employed as an IT Specialist for Capital Wine and Spirits and lives in Bucks County.
