welcome...thanks for taking a minute to come by.
music is my muse, my lifeblood, my passion. Because of this,
I have a particularly interesting mission, and if you've come here, you are likely interested in knowing more about it.
It looks a litte something like this:
I wish to co-create a fantastic musical experience with groups of people who wish to sing together...active lovers of life who wish to be elevated through elevating others...with young music students who wish to grow not only as musicians but as purveyors of the Divine...with an audience that may or may not have ears yet to hear.

One of my inherent skills is to bring people together to co-create. Therefore, the unique part of this mission is to bring this experience to multi-day music festivals where participation is open to anyone who wishes to sing. Fuse this choir with musicians who are already performing at the festival, and suddenly you have an interactive, participatory art project...

Music, if we want to participate in it on a level that communicates to the soul, must speak something much deeper than the egotistical banter of the mind. For I believe that music is in essence, the voice of the Divine.
I choose to be part of music that works to transcend, to elevate, to help move  people beyond tears so a new road can lie ahead.
All search for technique, skill, mastery is for me, a search to bring Divinity into the music.
