He has served as principal violist of the Peoria Symphony and for 40 years directed a summer music camp in Haiti. He is also co-founder and artistic director of the Peoria Bach Festival. He has won awards for teaching, achievement, and service from Bradley, the American Choral Directors Association, and the Haitian Ministry of Culture.
