I was born and raised in the small town of Trenton, Mo. I am the youngest of four children. My mother, Betty Wimer, is a retired school teacher, and my father, Bob Wimer is a retired barber. I got my first taste of music at a very early age when I was exposed to Andrew Llyod Webber’s “Jesus Christ Superstar”.
My involvement in music started in elementary school with the S.M. Rissler choir. Later, I picked up the saxophone and was included in the Trenton Golden Bulldogs Marching Band, but my main emphasis was in voice. I has been involved in all district / state choir in high school and received high marks at contest time. In college, I was involved in several major choral works that include, Brahms’s “Requiem”, Mozart’s “Requiem”, Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 9”, Ralph Vaughan William’s “A Sea Symphony”, and many others.
I attended Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, MO where I majored in music with an emphasis in vocal performance. My voice teachers has included, Clay Dawson, Jeff Nolte, Stephen Loss, Lynne Goodman, and Frank Thomas, and David Benz.
I have been involved in numerous solo performances, which include singing our nation’s national anthem at the Kansas City Royals on several occasions, featured soloist on “Carols and Lullabies”, “Race For The Cure”, the principle tenor soloist for the Messiah and Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle.. I has also put out several albums ranging from Classical, Jazz, Christian, and Adult Contemporary.
I am also involved in web design, computer repair, photography, video, and audio production. I am also the choir director at Wesley United Methodist Church in Trenton, MO.
