Beyond the fact that I have been in chorus’ since nursery school, I have also had many wonderful performing experiences throughout my life in other ways. These would be with the following groups:
Quaker Marching Band
Erie County FairBand
I also had the pleasure of instructing this color guard for 3 years. The Fair no longer has a performing color guard, only a band.
World University Games
Due to my contacts and performances with the previously mentioned groups, I also had the opportunity to perform in the opening ceremonies for this prestigious event. I also just happened to be one of the 6 soloists performing at the very beginning of the show!!
World Association of Veteran Athletes Games
