I have been a devotee of early music since college where I began studies on harpsichord and organ. I have a special interest in the harpsichord and its music and worked for many years as a professional harpsichord maker. I’ve studied harpsichord with Homer Wickline (harpsichordist to the Pittsburgh Symphony) and Louis Bagger (at Brandeis, Boston). I completed a two year course of musical study at the Longy School of Music in 1996 during which I began harpsichord studies with Peter Sykes which continued for about 10 years.
I’ve sung tenor voice with the Consortium for Early Music under Annette Murphy (Wolfeboro, NH), the Longy Community Chorus under Lorna Cooke deVaron (Cambridge, MA), the Clearlakes Chorale under Andy Campbell (Wolfeboro), Key Chorale (Sarasota) under Joseph Caulkins, and Musica Sacra of Sarasota under Robert Parrish. I traveled with Sheila Beardsley’s Ars & Amici on its April 2012 tour of the Dolomites and Venice, the highlight of which for me was singing in St. Mark’s Cathedral. For 7 years I collaborated with Ms. Beardsley to bring early music concerts to the Wakefield Opera House in Wakefield, NH where I resided at the time.
While residing in Florida, I did a brief private study of composition with Rex Willis at State College of Florida. I currently reside in Middletown, PA.
