Steve’s first job out in front came as Assistant Director of the Salem Chorus from 1984 to 1987 when he moved to Portland. He started his Director position with the West Portland Chapter and began to concentrate on developing his skills as a top-notch director. He directed the West Portland Vocal Gentry to two 2nd place finishes in the Evergreen District Chorus Competition.
In 1989 Steve moved back to the Salem area and was given the Directorship of the Salem Chorus. Since that time he has led the Salem Chorus to ten 1st place finishes in the District competition.
Besides directing, Steve is also a very talented and accomplished singer. He is a member of Q.C.E.D., the Quartet Champions of the Evergreen District. Steve qualified for membership to this club by winning the Evergreen District contest in 1988 with Four Cryin’ Out Loud. He has also been a member of one of the District’s youngest and most exciting quartets, DICE, 1997 Evergreen District Division 4 Champions and a 2nd place finish at District in 1997. Other quartets he has been a member of in the past are, Ring Masters (age 19), Capitol City Sound, Members Only, Harmony Heights, Done Deal, Sold Out and the Alliance.
We are so fortunate to have Steve. His hard work, dedication and desire to be the best we can be leads us to bigger and better things every year.
