Top Three Christmas Songs:
1–O Holy Night as sung by Miss Leontyne Price. My absolute favorite singer, there's no mistaking her for anyone else.
2–Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas by Judy Garland. Again, an unmistakable voice.
3–In The Bleak Midwinter. Whether singing it or listening to it the poetry of this song never fails to choke me up.
Voice Part: Tenor 2. No ego here, I love creating harmonies with the other parts.
How long have you been in the Symphonic Choir? This is my fifteenth season, I started in the fall of 2001.
How long have I been singing? All of my life. I can't remember a time I wasn't, either in church or school. I didn't start singing seriously until after college.
Favorite Eric Stark quote or saying: There are so many, a new one every rehearsal. I guess I'll cheat here and admit my favorite quote came from Jack Everly, the ISO Pops Director after a particularly well done piece in rehearsal. He said that there “won't be a dry seat in the house.”
