Fred comes from a musical Family and remembers hearing classical music while still in his crib. He began classical guitar lessons at age 11 and by age 15 was playing every bar and night club in Orange County. (Fred’s Parents were NOT amused ). All through high school and college Fred played with regional acts and toured the East Coast with several of them. After many years Fred left the music scene to pursue a career with New York State but the urge to play music again was too strong and he returned to play area stages for the past several years culminating in Fred joining “The DownTown Horns”. The finest musical ensemble in the Capital District.
