Al Fischer

Al Fischer has been involved with the Gateway Men's Chorus for many years in many capacities. Al was the Interim Artistic Director of the Chorus for our 21st season, leading us to the 2008 GALA Festival in Miami. For the next three seasons, Al was the Principal Accompanist for the Chorus. Al is now entering his third year as Artistic Director and is excited and proud to be back in front of the group.

You may have heard a little something about his adventures with the Archdiocese of St. Louis in March of 2012. If you haven't, Google "Al Fischer Wedding Images" for some stories about it, along with some great pictures of his wedding with Charlie Robin, long-time Chorus member.

Al is now the Music Teacher at City Academy in North St. Louis and the Music Director of College Avenue Presbyterian Church in Alton, Illinois. He rounds out his employment playing piano at his other spiritual home, Shaare Emeth Congregation.
