It is with utmost delight that we announce that a volunteer has stepped forward to take the position of Vocal Director for Riverfront Theatre Company’s 13th season. Please join us in welcoming Jeffrey Gartshore to the Company!
Knowing that we have a heavily demanding musical this season with our full-cast production of Aladdin and the Arabian Nights, we were exultant to know that Jeffrey would be coming on board! Last year, through the successful fundraising efforts of our members, we were able to purchase our own keyboard, which our wonderful pianist, Joanna Shultz, christened most effectively with our production of Princess Whatsername. This year, we’re adding Boomwhackers and a few other “bells and whistles” to our musical toolbox – look for an exciting year ahead of vocal instruction and performance with our cast!
Jeffrey A. Gartshore has been a Music teacher for over 20 years. He is a cellist who has played with numerous ensembles.
