Gotta brag a bit…

Post by jkbarnes »

A few months ago my step-son entered a song writing contest that he subsequently won! Part of the prize was studio time to record the song. After lots of work, here’s the final product. That’s him singing with students from his music program backing him up.

In the fall he’ll begin his studies at the University of Maryland, double majoring in vocal performance and pre-veterinary studies. Yeah, it’s an odd combination.

Vocal performance and pre-vet will be great - he’ll calm the wildest beast by singing to them :D

Well done to your step son.

If the noises my cat makes at 4am are anything to go by, maybe veterinary study’s and vocal performance are quite a vital and untapped combination….

A friend of mine has three noisy dogs all named after composers: Bach, Offenbach, and Howells.
