Mariano (Buddy) Garcia IV

“Starting cello in elementary school and singing in middle school kept me out of the streets and onto the stage.  I am the product of all my amazing educators.  The passion for music that they instilled in me is a passion that I bring to everyone I work with.  As a music director, I work hard to not only get a task done, but to educate all the performers as well.  I love to make the theater an environment where they can explore music and find their own passion.  My work in community theatre is most rewarding.  Whether I am directing, singing, playing cello, or piano I always create an environment where one can hear, feel, observe, and learn.”
