Vocal music has been a passion with me since high school. I’ve had some great teachers along the way, most notably Dick Disharoon, Saul Lilienstein, Lisa Salkov, and Michael Delos. I sang at Baltimore City College (high school,) Pikesville Senior High, and with the Pikesville Alumni Chorus and Essex Community College Chorus. I have sung barbershop with the Cactus Chordsmen, the Seattle SeaChordsmen, the Alumnotes, and What’s Cookin’. I have sung sacred music at Chizuk Amuno Congregation, Temple Beth El, Temple Chai, and Temple Beth Am. I have sung the national anthem with my groups at Camden Yards, Bank One Ballpark, and Safeco Field.

In September of 2013, I joined The Choir of the Sound. What a great group! I’m looking forward to a long, happy, and rewarding association with them.

I play the guitar and uke a little bit, but not enough to say I’m a real musician!

I can’t imagine going through a week without a couple of rehearsals.

I also do computer music notation, working with Finale software. I have done charts for just about every group I’ve sung with, as well as the Barbershop Harmony Society and, a repository of Jewish sacred music.
