About me:

I live in northern Indiana, 1 hour due east of Chicago.
I am a "retiring" eye doctor.

I presently have some extra time to devote to personal musical pursuits.
I came late to composing. I am 67. 
My musical endeavors have become a serious (my wife would say "obsessive") passion.

 

I sing in a professional choral organization:  Vesper Chorale

Our repertoire is mainly sacred but we are branching out at this time.

 

I let my ear and experience inform me as to what constitutes enjoyable choral music. This also affects how my own compositions are crafted.

 

We only have a few seconds to pique the interest of  those viewing this site, so I have chosen pieces here to reflect that reality.

 

I am enjoying sharing the music of very talented composers on this site. 

Please give us feedback as to the offerings found here.
