Our Story

Jim and Chris met at a drinking fountain in Weigel Hall at Ohio State's school of music in 1985. She complimented his solo performance of a Chopin Scherzo after a piano departmental recital one afternoon; caught off guard, he thanked her intriguingly and took note of this mysterious, never-before-seen piano major. Many ice cream dates, a wedding, four kids, many hundreds of students, and a few short years later , here we are today.
