Biography -- Tom has served as a musician in both Lutheran and Roman Catholic parishes in Virginia, Montana, and Maryland. His award-winning choral music is published by several publishers. His studies at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and the Catholic University School of Music in Washington, D.C. prepared him for a career in which he has mixed classical technique and jazz improvisation. During the last decade he has explored the nexus of creativity and healing and its implication for liturgical musicians. He and his wife, Tricia, will celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary in December.
