John is from Hagerstown, MD. He started in music almost 16 years ago when he began playing euphonium and piano. Since then, he has picked up trombone, drums, saxophone, and trumpet. He graduated with a Music Industry degree from WVU in 2021 and works in Human Resources for JLG. This is his first on-stage appearance at the Apollo, but he has performed in five YSTW productions in the pit orchestra. He is excited to be on-stage for the first time with his wife, Jessica.
