Brian Hampton

Choral Section Leader, Tenor

  Since the age of two, Brian has been fascinated by music. He taught himself piano at an early age and studied trumpet from middle school through college at Southeast Missouri State and later Indiana University. Ultimately, he settled on business as a major and career path. Singing was always a hobby but later became a passion and a focus - performing with choruses, at weddings and beyond. He grew up in Sikeston, MO but landed in Houston, TX for many years and later NYC before returning to St. Louis in July of 2019. By day, Brian has a boutique public relations firm working with businesses, law firms and entertainment clients. He has a dog, Lucy, whom he shares with his parents, as her grandparents seem to spoil her even more.
