“I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music.”

About Me

Hi, my name is Chris.  I graduated from Western Connecticut State University in Fall of 2010 with a BS in Muisc Education.  While at WCSU, I studied bass with Dave Ruffels.  I had the oppurtunity to preform in various ensemble including jazz combos, the WCSU Orchestra, the WCSU Concert Band, the WCSU Wind Ensemble and the WCSU opera orchestra.  In addition, I had the privlage to play in chamber string ensembles coached by Chris Finkel.  I did my student teaching in Westport, CT under the supervision of Carrie Mascaro and Nate Brown.   

Currently I am the Principal Bassist of the Connecticut Valley Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Joe Hodge.  

In addition to music, I am an avid disc golfer, NASCAR and Alabama Football fan.

I look forward to helping you find a new instrument, some new sheet music to play, or even if you just need a new box of reeds.
