I came to Sacramento & Advent in 1986 in what was my last assignment in a 24 year Air Force Career. My wife Barbara and I joined the choir and 2 years later, I "temporarily" became its director. However, I was no stranger to directing choirs, beginning with directing a men's chorus as a student as St. Olaf College and continuing throughout my Air Force travels. With Advent's growth, the position was expanded into that of Music Director. While it has many facets, I believe the job of the Music Director is actually very simple - "Facilitate the Song of the Church."
