Biography

I am a retiring eye doctor who finds he has time for a new passion in life - composing choral music.I have been a professional singer for over 50 years. I live in Elkhart IN, near South Bend, 1 hour due east of Chicago.I have sung in professional choirs all my life. In the twilight of my years (I am age 67) I have been struck with a passion to compose. My choral singing experience and private and independent study has taught me what my idea of good choral music should sound like. Thankfully, modern notation software such as Sibelius, has enabled me to put on paper the musical ideas rattling around in my head. I have uploaded many pieces to ScoreExchange.com and have enjoyed the feedback from other composers. I frequently consult with with Lee Dengler, who has published many choral pieces over the years. We discuss my work in hopes of creating compositions that will be worthy of performance and publication.One of my new activities is building a website dedicated to the FREE distributing of quality choral music by living composers.Check it out:  www.freechoralscores.org/I would appreciate any feedback you might have regarding this project.
