Why I sing

Mark Nickel | Tenor
In grade school, all my teachers played the piano, so singing was something we did every day. Being old enough for the real children’s choir in fifth grade was an important rite of passage. There were great choirs available through high school, college, grad school, and now here in Providence. Choral singing stays with you — and you with it — if you’re lucky enough to start early.
