Why I Joined WPCS
I joined WPCS because, after receiving degrees in music but ultimately not actually working in music, I missed not being in a choir. I longed for that musical and familial connection.

When and How You Became Involved in Music
I first knew I loved to sing when my parents (mainly my mom) and I would sing along to songs on the radio in car trips. I still remember singing along to music by those pillars of the 70’s and 80’s, Dennis DeYoung and Styx, Phil Collins and Genesis, and the occasional John Mellencamp classic. I’ve been singing in choirs since the 4th grade.
What Is Your Favorite Song to Sing in the Shower
Musical renditions of “Someone to Watch Over Me”, “Back to Before” from the musical Ragtime, “Fly Me to the Moon”, and that famous Nat King Cole classic “L-O-V-E”.
