“My years in the Western New York Children’s Chorale [predecessor to Buffalo Niagara Youth Chorus] provided me with a lifetime of memories and an amazing foundation of musical skills on which to build my future career. The musicianship and discipline we learned at a young age combined with the inspiring teachers and musicians we worked with changed the course of my life. The experiences of singing at the Duomo in Florence, Italy, and at Carnegie Hall in New York City are still highlights of my musical life.”
