He is Professor Emeritus of Visual and Performing Arts at Fairfield University.
Take 4 is a registered quartet in the international Barbershop Harmony Society. Take 4‘s members have a broad musical background, from classical piano to Doo-Wop and everything in-between. They love singing a great variety of songs -- anything from The Beach Boys, to Doo-Wop, Country, or Broadway ballads; all done in the traditional Barbershop style. Take 4 was the winner of the 2016 Yankee Division Barbershop Quartet contest, and was the New England District’s 2016 Novice Quartet champions, and finished in the top 10 in the overall competition. They will be in Lake George, NY this May, competing for a spot in this year’s New England District Competition.
