Since 1994, it has been my privilege to direct choirs of adults and children in a variety of settings including church, school (K-12), and community groups. Teaching my music education students at the University of Bridgeport to conduct and rehearse effectively is one of my biggest joys . I believe choral singing is a very important art form for our time. When we perform choral music with passion, we combine our spirits, voices, minds, and hearts to produce a product far more powerful than that which any of us can accomplish alone. Choral music can help us move beyond our self-absorption, connecting us to a reality far larger than ourselves. I am available for guest conducting, clinics, and workshops.
