Chris hails originally from Highland Falls, NY and currently resides in New York City, where he sings with the choir of The Riverside Church and spends his days producing business conferences. A graduate of both Westminster Choir College and Indiana University, he is thrilled to be singing in his second season with Kinnara.
Ned is a graduate of the College of New Jersey (Trenton State) and currently is pursuing a Master of Arts in Church Music & Theology at Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, OH. When he's not driving insane distances for his love of music (yay hybrid cars!), Ned enjoys the quiet tedium of rebuilding his piano and requilling his harpsichord.

Andrew, bass/baritone, is very excited to be singing his first concert with Kinnara this spring. Although a Midwestern boy at heart, Andrew loves to travel and live in exciting places. He is looking forward to conquering the East Coast after mastering the art of West Coast, Great Lakes, and Eastern European living.
James J. Seiler
Baritone, choral contractor, avid gardener, theater-goer, food aficionado, stage performer and world traveler. (Whew...) In earlier days, he darkened the halls of Westminster Choir College and Juilliard. Now, he enjoys singing and cavorting with numerous professional choral ensembles in the greater Metropolitan area. But none more than Kinnara Ensemble!
Peter J. Tamburro
Pete, a baritone with a severe choir addiction, hails from northern New Jersey and is thrilled to be singing with the Kinnara Ensemble. He studied voice with Jean Bradel and Dr. Buddy James at Millersville University where he earned a degree in Music Education. To further satiate his choral appetite, he sings with the St. Luke's Episcopal Church of Montclair choir, The Masterwork Chorus, and just about any group looking to fill out their bass section for their next performance.
