I graduated from Kiski in 1988. I played flute/picc in marching band with Mr. Koter, and symphonic band with Mr. Lamendola. Good times!
I went to the University of North Carolina and studied business, and continued private flute study while there. I still live down here in NC.
I still play my flute in church, for weddings, in a chamber orchestra, and with the orchestra of a local community theatre. I'm raising 4 kids to love music and musical theatre.
I have lots of great memories of my time with the Kiski bands, and many of the strongest character traits I have, I can attribute to the great experiences I had in the Kiaki music program.
I graduated from Kiski in 1978. I played Alto Sax in the Marching Band for Mr. Botti, and was also Drum Major my last 2 years. I also played in the Jazz Band for Mr. Costanza and Symphonic Band for Mr. Lamendola.
After high school, I performed for 4 years with the University of Pittsburgh Marching Band, graduating with a degree in Metallurgical Engineering in 1982.
Although I have worked in the Specialty Metals industry for the past 33 years, I have remained active in music, as a singer with the Tri-County Choir Institute for the past 18 years.
My wife Bernadette and I live in the western suburbs of Pittsburgh.
