I have deep respect for classical musicians and the many wonderful instrumentalists in the Clinton Symphony.
At age seven I started piano lessons. Being in an Air Force family that moved frequently, I had a succession of piano teachers. My love of sports conflicted with my commitment to practicing, leaving me less accomplished then I might have become. At Peru Central High School I had the privilege of performing with and accompanying my good friend Rocky Blake who went on to an acclaimed career as arguably the finest Rossini tenor of his time. It was obvious to me that my talent did not approach Rocky’s and in the interest of enjoying regular meals, I settled on a career as a well-nourished veterinarian, rather than a hungry classical pianist! I have deep respect for classical musicians like Maestro Charles Schneider and the many wonderful instrumentalists in the Clinton Symphony.
