What’s a COVID-Times Hobby or Skill You’ve Picked Up? I’ve learned to communicate with my dog. Or at least I think I’ve learned to communicate with my dog. I’ve also gotten really into revitalizing discarded furniture and providing a second life to what would be waste.
What Keeps You Connected to the Ars Nova Repertoire? I’ve been singing in choirs since the fourth grade. Yes, I was a male soprano and yes, it was certainly a time. Over the years, I have transitioned into performing more rigorous works, specifically focusing on music of the Renaissance and the Baroque period. After spending time in college focusing on revitalizing music that would have been lost to the annals of history, I knew that performing little-known music was something I wanted to continue doing in my post-college career and to do so at an equally high caliber. Ars Nova Singers provides this outlet and so much more. The repertoire is challenging and engaging, and the music always serves a purpose–be it to evoke emotion, tell a story, or demonstrate the choir’s prowess.
Chris is also a Singer.
