About the instructors
Bronwyn Edwards and John Lehrack team up to bring a wealth of musicianship and vocal, conducting and instrumental expertise to the choir.
Bronwyn Edwards describes herself as a musical catalyst -- someone who strives to create musical opportunities for singers and instrumentalists of all levels and abilities. Bron is an accomplished pianist, private teacher of piano, theory and guitar, composer, mentor and performer. Her choral music compositions have been publicly commissioned and performed in Seattle's Benaroya Hall. She was the featured solo pianist at Seattle-Tacoma International airport from 2007-2015 during the holiday season. Bron is a mentor to young musicians, and has served as Music Director at Fauntleroy Church, UCC, for the past 11 years, where she not only directs the choir but takes an entrepreneurial role to bring both recognized artists and local musicians to the community through concerts and events.
John Lehrack was formerly the Professor of Music at South Puget Sound Community College where he led the choral program and taught voice, music theory and music fundamentals. John is also the Music Director and Organist at St. Alban's Episcopal Church in Edmonds. In his spare time, John is the proprietor of Dorothy's Piano Bar and Cabaret, a new venue that will be opening soon in Seattle. Keep tabs at www.DorothysPianoBar.com. John has appeared with numerous choral groups, orchestras, opera companies and theatre groups in Washington, Hawaii, California, New York and Florida including San Francisco City Summer Opera, the Solano Symphony, Hawaii Opera Theatre, San Francisco Cabaret Opera, Na Leo Nahenahe, Jewish Folk Chorus of San Francisco and many more. John is a versatile musician who loves most types of music; preferring to listen to dance, pop and Hawaiian, sing musical theatre, cabaret and French art song and play Debussy, Brahms, Haydn and Liszt. He lives in-between Ballard and Phinney Ridge with his two dogs and cat.

NEW to singing in a choir and/or reading music?
Here is a YouTube video introduction to understanding the basics of reading notes and rhythm which you may find helpful. Created by Tim Hansen, I think it's a great explanation for a beginner about the nuts and bolts of music. Enjoy!
