We have been praying for and planning to have a free music program at The Warehouse since our inception. Many people have shown interest in helping, but we have been waiting for that right person to come along to head the program up...and he has arrived!
Marcus Simmons earned his BA in Music Performance and Music Education from the University of Maryland in Baltimore, his Masters of Music in Voice Performance and Pedagogy from Miami University in Ohio, and his Doctorate of Music in Voice Performance, Pedagogy and Literature from Indiana University. Marcus is the founding artistic director and conductor of the Hoosier Community Chorus and gives private lessons in voice, piano, viola, site reading, ear training and music theory. He has served as an adjunct professor at Ivy Tech and a studio teacher at Melody Music. Marcus has had the distinct privilege of performing around the world for dignitaries since the age of eight and has more accomplishments than can be listed here.
Marcus and his wife Jessica have made their home in Bloomington, Indiana and have felt the tug of the Lord on their hearts to be involved at The Warehouse. Needless to say, we are more than elated to have Marcus develop a music program for us. The music program will start with Parents and Preschoolers time after Labor Day and will grow from there. We will make sure to keep everyone updated with the program's growth and new opportunities.
It is only with your help that we are able to make programs like this available for free to the community. By keeping the programs free we ensure that anyone who wants to participate can and we have the opportunity to build relationships with them. For that we thank you! If you have any questions or would like to get involved, please contact the development director.
