Chris has been singing in choral groups since junior high school - a long time now. He has sung with large and small groups, madrigals, musical theater productions, highly competitive groups, and low-key community groups. In more recent years, he has taken college-level courses in choral directing and has served as assistant director, associate director and interim music director for several groups, including the ECC. His goal is to help singers connect with audiences and have a positive impact on both singers and audiences. Outside of the singing world, Chris works full-time as a database administrator for CHA Companies. His family includes his wife of 40+ years, Randy, three sons all living locally, and a 10 year old granddaughter who has him totally wrapped around her little finger.
