|Paul Hill is a lifelong musician, woodworker, and luthier. He has been an amateur and professional musician in numerous configurations over the years, teaching and performing from Nashville's Opryland Hotel, to Las Vegas’ Caesar’s Palace, the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and, once, at the top of the Aiguille Du Midi in Chamonix, France.|
He is half-owner of Renaissance Fine Woodworking in Pullman, a contracting and cabinetry business. He also repairs and restores stringed instruments in the basement shop of his Moscow home.
He has sung with the Palouse Harmony Chorus for five years, sings lead in the barbershop quartet “Four Names in a Hat,” and still plays fiddle from time to time with his local band Steptoe.
Paul’s wife Laura is a psychologist and professor at WSU. They enjoy fishing and rafting in the summers, and sometimes they take their restored ’56 travel trailer down to the river to find some quiet time.
|Our former Director: |
Tom Crossler directed the PHC for one short year, but during that time he led us to our highest score ever in competition. His enthusiasm and dedication were a big help to our chorus. He "retired" from the PHC, then engaged in a long ordeal with cancer. He succumbed to its ravages in 2016.
With heavy hearts, Tom, we miss you!
