Ok, I’ve had a busy week or two and have neglected my blogging duties. I still have a few contributors to the Baconworks Tune-smithing Contest that I would like to highlight.
Composer: Chris Szpara
Music: Kenilworth Castle, Devitt’s Reel
My name is Christopher Szpara, and I play the fife.
Hmm lets see…
I am a graduate of the Hartt School of Music, with a degree in flute performance. In my spare time I enjoy traveling, composing and of course, fife and drum. I have marched with quite a few corps, including The Warehouse Point Jr. Fife and Drum Corps, The Warehouse Point Seniors, and Connecticut Valley field music. I am in my fifth year of playing with Ameri-Clique and quite recently I joined the Madison Street Project. Kenilworth Castle was written in 2003, and was named after the summer home of Mr. E.C. Taft, a wealthy paper mill owner from Holyoke MA. The castle stood for nearly 63 years gaining much fame and popularity in the city, when in 1959 it met its’ unfortunate demise.
Chris also tells me that he can be found on facebook.
