Who is Andy Rush?
Andy began this musical life in high school as a casual folk guitarist and singer. Through most of his 20’s Andy made his living as an artisan goldsmith, performing folk music in restaurants and clubs on some weekends. Andy then studied music education at Queen’s University and began teaching high school choral, band and guitar music in 1986. Andy used this teaching experience as he started leading impromptu choral groups at folk festivals and at weekend workshops. Andy has just retired from his high school career, but continues as the founder and artistic director of the 110 voice Open Voices Community Choir of Kingston, and as an instructor and practice teaching supervisor at the Faculty of Education, Queen’s University. Andy is famous for creating ‘instant’ choirs, picking great repertoire and arranging on the fly to meet the needs and interests of his singers.
