Jack has sung with the Chancel Choir of First Presbyterian Church since coming to Albany in 1995. He was invited to restart the Bell Choir in 2008 and has enjoyed working with the ringers very much. The purchase of a new four octave set of Malmark handbells through the 250th Anniversary Fund was an important milestone for the group. Jack holds a Bachelor of Music degree from Houghton College, Houghton, NY in Music Education and piano. He has over 30 years choral conducting experience, primarily with church choirs.
