“Pursuing the highest musical standards in an atmosphere of joy and mutual respect.”
Eric Leinsdorf called his conducting book, The Composer’s Advocate. This is exactly how I see my role as a leader.
It has been my honor to guide the Meramec Symphony Orchestra, Eliot Chapel Choir, The University of Missouri of Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra and my beloved Belleville Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorale. I am currently conductor of the Oratorio Society of Estes Park where I get to unite my love of the Colorado mountain-scape with my love of music.
