What makes CHC unique?
"Chestnut Hill is unique because I feel that I have a second family home there. It is a school that sets your dreams on fire. I am grateful to have the opportunity to return as an accompanist for CHC music recitals and for the opportunity as an alumnus to still sing in the community shows which are full of musical students and graduates. This is a wonderful sharing and learning experience for all involved."
What are the benefits of a holistic education?
"Holistic education is based on the principle that students find identity and purpose in life by connecting to the community, nature and humanitarian values. I have found purpose in advancing our society though the growth of musical endeavors. I believe CHC gives you a well-rounded education that allows you to grow in every new situation you encounter. Through keeping every tie, the rope in which we start just gets stronger and stronger!"
