  • Bio/Profile
  •  
  • In the fall of 2009 Brandon accidentally stumbled upon a performance by the Keystone Chorus at the Bethel Park Community Center. From that moment, Brandon has been actively involved in the Barbershop scene, having sung with three choruses, three quartets, having participated with a youth chorus that performed at Carnegie Hall, and holding various leadership roles in both of his active chapters.
     
                    During a brief tenure in Mississippi after graduating from Washington & Jefferson College (W&J) in 2014, Brandon sang with the RSVP Chorus from Germantown, TN. Upon his return to Pennsylvania in 2015, Brandon returned to the Keystone Chorus, also joining Vocal Confluence (then the Steel City Harmonizers) as a section leader and assistant director, and continues to hone his skills as both a singer and director.
     
                    In September of 2017 Brandon was named the frontline director of The Keystone Chorus, and in October of 2017 he led the chorus to the distinction of Johnny Appleseed District’s Most Improved Chorus.
     
                    In addition to his chorus experience, Brandon has competed in several quartets- most notably Gateway, Top 20 finisher in the Youth Barbershop Quartet Contest in Las Vegas, NV, in 2017.
     
                    Prior music experience includes Bethel Park High School Concert Choir and Top 21, along with W&J College Choir and Camerata Singers, for near 15 years of singing experience. During his time at W&J, Brandon received his B.A. in Music and German, where he concentrated the bulk of his studies in conducting and vocal performance.
     
                    Outside of barbershop, Brandon is an accountant, currently pursuing his MS of Accounting with a concentration in Taxation.
