Will has been a valued member of our chorus for many years, and until early 2020, also served as the assistant director. A high school music educator, Will is used to working with musicians of all skill levels, turning them into championship performers. His students have been recognized as champions on many levels both locally and state-wide.
Following the retirement of our Hall-of-Fame Director, Steve Morin, Will took on the role of Interim Director for the SenateAires. Quickly assembling a new music team along with a few other people in key roles, Will took on the monumental job of keeping our group engaged, even though our world had been turned completely upside down with a global pandemic that prevented us from meeting in person. Will was not at all fazed by that daunting task; drawing upon his innate leadership qualities and educational background, he devised a plan to help us stay positive, engaged, and even to learn some new music – all “virtually” using just our on-line meetings. He and the music team introduced several new songs, working with all the members, with section by section learning until we were comfortable singing on our own.
Will has helped us to remember that our brotherhood, our family with the love for making music and serving others, is much stronger than the forces that try to keep us apart. We are all better with him, and we look forward to continuing our growth, not only in numbers, but also in our proficiency. Now, voted unanimously by our Board of Directors, we are grateful and delighted to welcome Will as our permanent director. Thank you, Will, for agreeing to be our leader.
