It is with great pleasure that I get to introduce you to a dear friend of mine, Heather Kani! Heather is a music teacher at Anne Frank Elementary School here in Philadelphia. She teaches General Music to students in grades Kindergarten through 5th grade and Choir to 4th and 5th grades.

It is with great pleasure that I get to introduce to you a friend of mine, Roy Belzer IV. Roy has recently moved to Philadelphia from Chicago, and has already begun making waves in the classical music scene here in Philadelphia. Aside from being an active performer, Roy has co-founded the Philadelphia-based choral group Tutti Allegro. Aside from his musical activities, Roy is also a personal trainer, and he aims to blend the two professions together.

He participates in several performing groups, such as Singing City Choir and Chestnut Street Singers while remaining involved in research and writing for a few performance groups in the Philadelphia area.
