Chris Hardin has been a conductor and musical director for 30 years.  He understands the language and needs of the producer or director and being a performer himself, is able to convey those directions to the musicians and singers. The ability to make quick changes is one of his strengths.  Being a first class accompanist, Chris understands the importance of timing and anticipating any given cue from the artist.  

He has the innate ability to draw out the most from every ensemble that he has led. Completely at home with a full symphonic orchestra or a small jazz trio, as well as a master chorale and a five piece a cappella group, Chris enjoys his job to the fullest and all involved enjoy working with him.
