Steve Caress # 1.jpg


Tenor – Member Since 2020

EDUCATION: B.A., M.M. Applied Voice, University of Illinois

PROFESSION: Associate Actuary, Farm Bureau, Insurance company

REASON FOR JOINING VOCE: I enjoy small ensembles of excellent singers! Trying to make every detail right while still keeping things fresh is exhausting but very rewarding!

FAVORITE MUSIC: I love almost every genre that is well done. I would say that Broadway is my favorite but I also love Pop and German Lieder. Of course anything by my favorite composer, Stephanie Caress, is at the top of my list. 

Singing in a Barbershop chorus is loads of fun but much harder work than someone outside of that would might realize. The discipline of not only getting the music just right (pitch, timbre, vowels sounds and placement) but getting the story across as well is a great challenge. The parties are fun too!!
