Bryce Denney (Director)

Bryce is a microchip verification engineer, a pianist, a singer, and a woodworker. During the COVID-19 pandemic, he and Kathryn learned how to organize safe in-person musical events for choirs who could not meet any other way. The restrictions of the pandemic unexpectedly provided an opportunity to learn new audio/video skills and to contribute to the arts. The Driveway Choir project and the documentary are an exciting intersection of music, science, solving problems, and connecting with people. Bryce has degrees in physics and piano performance from Oberlin College.
