PAUL NAVIDAD '85
The Chorus was by and large the best musical training I have ever had. I had great relative pitch going into my audition, but the constant use of solfege drilled function into my head and ears. I am able to do what I do today because of that training. As an improviser, I have developed a reputation for being a lyrical player, and I attribute that to my vocal training in the Chorus (my saxophone teacher in graduate school, Leo Potts used to ask me in my lessons, "How would you sing the line?").
