From The Pit


This is "From The Pit," where we talk musical theatre. From overtures to exit music and everything in between.

Having studied clarinet/woodwinds at UBC right out of high school, Kevin's career paths has taken many turns since, but through it all, he has been a part of the local musical theatre scene, playing in and coordinating pit orchestras for over 25 years.  Throughout this time, Kevin has had the great fortune of working with some amazing mentors and music directors, such as Christopher King, who always have a wealth of knowledge to learn from.

Very recently, Kevin went back to school and completed the Advanced Arts and Entertainment Management program at Capliano University.  Shortly after, he was hired as seasonal staff for Theatre Under the Stars, and now, in addition to having 17 seasons and 23 shows with them as a musician, works full time for TUTS as an Operations Coordinator.  

In his spare time, Kevin also volunteers as a clarinet/woodwind coach for the Greater Vancouver Music Youth Acadamy, trying to embark wisdom on the musicians of tomorrow!

For the 2017 season, Kevin celebrates his 26th consecutive year with Royal City Musical Theatre Company...where it all began...
