Why You Joined WPCS I’m saying this with the best possible meaning: they don’t fool around. The direction and choir members have serious chops and dedication – and one can immediately hear it. Also Mark T and others have great tastes in choral music. These facts make one want to put in the time and effort the music deserves.
Day Job I work mostly as a musician as of late – but can also be found at a showroom and gallery of exceptional Leica cameras on Superior Street.
Favorite Type(s) of Music Ethnic of all kinds, Romantic classical, rock, folk
Favorite Composers Ones like Faure, Grieg, Brahms – and some unfortunately little-known Polish ones (Pankiewicz, Żeleński, Niewiadomski, Noskowski). I also especially like when composers mix folk idioms into their works in inventive ways.
When and How You Became Involved in Music My parents started my brother and I on piano lessons the fall I began kindergarten. Singing came later, in junior high. Concert Choir with Chet Alwes at the University of Illinois in Urbana was one of many high points with regard to music and memories.
