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.
