Place of employment (what do you do & where?): President and CEO of Brevard Music Center
Tell us about your children/spouse/pets:
My wife (Susanne) and I have a wonderful son named Zach who is a superb bartender and student at the University of Colorado in Boulder. We share our home with two small and cute dogs, one is 12 and the other less than a year old. They differ greatly in what they both consider fun (sleeping for one and yapping for the other)
What part of your job at Brevard Music Center do you most love?
Walking around the beautiful campus when filled with our talented students and faculty, and listening to the music.
What’s the audition process for kids applying to BMC? Everyone must submit an audition tape. It is very competitive.
What’s life like for them during a summer at BMC? (what’s a typical day like for these kids?)
Daily life for a student is intense. And the students would have it no other way. For instance, opera students usually have their first call at 9 am and then spend almost all day in movement classes, vocal rehearsals acting rehearsals and private and group coachings. The day can stretch till 11 pm.
