Community Service

Service has always been an important part of my life.  From a very young age I realized the value of contributing to the community.  I was fortunate to be born into a family that gave me every opportunity as a child that was available in our community. From athletics, to music, to art/dance, and scouting, I did it all. Thanks MOM!


In my early 20s, as my coaching career began to take off, I pondered the amount of time adults had given me during my lifetime through coaching, music, and all other special activities in my life thus far. I soon recognized how mammoth that amount of time was. I came to the realization that as I was given the “gift” of other people’s attention through these activities, I owed society the same amount of time in return.   Pay back – every hour that had been invested in me, I needed to reinvest back into the community. So, here’s the list of what I have received…

Foxdale Village Choir and Friends School Peace Choir

Foxdale Village Chorus


For the past few years I have been serving as the Choir director at the Foxdale Village Retirement Community in State College, PA. This choir has two seasons, one in the fall and one in the winter/spring. We typically have approximately 20-30 singers ranging in age from their mid 60s to over 100 years old. The main purpose of this group is to build community through singing. I am always honored to stand in stand in front of them. Together they bring more than 2,000 years of singing experience to each rehearsal. Many of our members have played or sung semiprofessionally during their lives. While community is at the heart of all we do, we sing well!  Please check back in the future for links to some of our audio recordings.


Here are some sample copies of recent programs.

State College Friends School Peace Choir


For the past three years I have been serving as the State College Friends School Peach Choir director.  The Peace Choir is considered a vital aspect of community service for the older students in this K-8th grade school.  The choir is open to all students in grades 4-8. In December we hold a joint concert with the Foxdale Village Chorus and in the spring we have several community and school wide concerts. The choir typically consists of 30-35 of the 100 students who attend Friends School.
