Will Duchon

Will Duchon comes to WMNR with a broad background in music education and performance. He began studying piano at age seven in his hometown of White Plains, NY with Robert Canfield, and has vast experience in public performance as a recitalist and soloist with various orchestras. One of his greatest thrills was performing the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1 at age 17 with a community orchestra in Merida, Mexico.

Will is a graduate of SUNY Purchase and a winner of the Artists International Young Musicians Auditions in 1990, which resulted in a New York debut at Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall that year. He has subsequently appeared at Weill Hall numerous times in solo recitals and ensemble concerts.

Will has been a church musician since 1981 and is currently serving as Music Director for Monroe Congregational Church in Monroe, CT.  He teaches piano privately and has taught many adult education classes in music appreciation and music theory. Will also founded a concert chorus at Ashlar Village in Wallingford, CT.

In 2003, Will graduated from The New Seminary in New York City and created an organization, The Opus 30 Mission ( www.opusthirty.blogspot.com ) which works on behalf of incarcerated persons wrongfully convicted.

Will has always loved radio and very much enjoys the experience of broadcasting. Says Will, “The communication and intimacy I feel with listeners is very similar to the experience of performing.” Click here for Will's blog:  Friday Evening Classics
