Originally from Penn- sylvania I have been a part-time professional singer for most of my life, primarily with church choirs. I sang in small groups at Yale and was a founding member of the men's vocal ensemble Chanticleer. The rest of my career has been rather checkered. I've been a federal employee in the Trade side of U.S.Customs for over twenty years. When able to retire, I plan to work on some writing projects-- including two plays-- currently on the back burner.
One of my all-time favorite composers. As a young man he showed an uncanny resemblance to Bob Bruner, my college roommate, who is now Dean of the Darden Graduate School of Business Administration at the University of Virginia. You can understand how Clara Schumann was smitten. I guess it really was the other way around. Still, he was then quite the catch.
