He is active as an MTNA member as well, currently teaching in a small studio setting in addition to his duties as director of music at St. Mary Catholic Church in Morgantown, WV.  He has completed previous degree work at both Wichita State University and St. Norbert College and plans to complete his DMA degree in May of this year at West Virginia University.

The concert is free and the public is encouraged to attend.  Donations will be accepted at the door.
