John Yao

John Yao is a bass who currently works as an Admin Asst at IC. He studied music and composition in undergrad and grad school and is now actively involved at First Presbyterian Church of Ithaca (including its fabulous choir). 

His hobbies include painting and writing (which he hopes to make more than just hobbies), as well as cooking, reading, playing the piano, and watching movies ("anything related to the arts, pretty much"). 

No one musical experience of his sticks out above the others, but he has fond memories of his grandmother playing the piano and organ for him and his brother when they were kids.
