Kyle hails from T-Town and spent much of his growing-up years visiting Puget Sound, taking lessons through the Community Music Department before moving on campus his freshman year. As a Music major, Kyle studied organ and voice; he added Communication as a second major, exploring an interest in media studies. After earning a graduate degree in Music, Kyle worked in public relations and marketing communication before moving to Boston, where his music career was the focus, spanning Baroque organ music to musical direction for A Chorus Line. He currently directs high school-age ensembles with a local youth chorus and is the assistant director of a semi-professional community choir with many fellow Puget Sound alumni of the Adelphian Concert Choir. Also a published composer, Kyle’s music was featured in a holiday program broadcast annually on PBS television nationwide.
