Fran joined the Peace of Heart Choir in 2014. She went into the audition as a soprano and came out an alto 2. Giving up on her decades-long dream to sing the melody line, but boldly going where no soprano has gone before, she has taken on the challenge of alto harmony.
Steering Committee Co-Chair
Andrew joined the POHC in the spring of 2016 simply as a means of keeping his voice in shape for performing with various bar bands in NYC. It didn't take long, however, for veteran members to trick him into taking on multiple leadership roles and for Director Galvan to recruit him to play guitar and bass. Before he could say no, Fran Silverberg had signed him on as Steering Committee Co-Chair, and the rest, as they say, is history. He rules with an iron fist and will not tolerate tardiness! Seriously though, he loves this choir and its mission and hopes to contribute to its future success.
Soprano Section Leader
Nancy has been with the POHC for 2 years. From 1983 to 2005, Nancy, professionally known as Nancy Monroe, sang jazz, and is a recording artist [2 cds] with MJA Records. At present, she thoroughly enjoys teaching music to elementary school children.
Bass-Baritone Section Leader
Barry has been with the Peace of Heart choir since 1951, while Truman was in office. He is still waiting for the Choir to perform his favorite Music “3 B’s”: J.S. Bach, P.D.Q. Bach and Jerry Bock.
ELLEN REZNICK & VIVIAN CONAN
Alto Section Co-Leaders
Ellen and Vivian are co-leaders of the Alto section. They started in the choir at about the same time (2006 & 2007), share a birthday (May 7th), and have brothers who are avid bikers. All that is purely coincidence, but it makes for a great partnership.
Tenor Section Leader
Wilfred has been a Choir member since 2005. He is frequently a soloist and is a songwriter as well. He also enjoys photography, computers, spending time with friends, and doing things he’s never done before.
