Many people have contributed their time and experience to make this project possible. Everyone has shared their learning with the community freely and generously through email and social media.
This page introduces some of them.
Baritone David Newman enjoys an active and varied concert career throughout North America. Hailed as “electrifying” by the Washington Post and noted by The Philadelphia Inquirer for his “eloquent, emotional singing,” he is in particular demand as a Baroque specialist. His recent Pilate in St. John Passion at the Bethlehem Bach Festival was also recorded for Analekta. He performs and records regularly with Opera Lafayette, including acclaimed productions of Monsigny’s Le Deserteur and Le Roi et Le Fermier, and Lalla Roukh by Felicien David. Mr. Newman teaches voice and music theory at James Madison University.
Bryce is a computer hardware verification manager, a pianist, an accompanist, a singer, and a woodworker. He majored in Physics and Piano Performance at Oberlin College. This project is a fun intersection of science, music, solving problems, and connecting with people.
Kathryn is a singer, a French horn player, a choral director, a conductor, a composer, and a music educator. She has a Bachelor of Music in French Horn Performance from Oberlin College and an Master of Music in Elementary Music Education from Boston University.
Bill Stearns grew up in a musical family and has been singing in a cappella choruses all his life. He currently sings with VoxStars and Harmony Night in NH's upper valley and supports the North Country Chordsmen in their in-person rehearsals. He sang tenor with 2015 New England Barbershop champs Fast Track. In the few moments where there isn't a tune running though his head, he works with a software development group and gives technical presentations. Bill would be happy to help you plan out your own driveway choir.
Sandi is a social psychologist, program evaluator, and sometime choir wrangler. She is interested in collaborating / sharing equipment with other singing groups in the greater-Boston area.
