     Nichols, Monte

    He is a bass singer, keyboardist, conductor and music director who began his life in music by being taught the piano by his grandmother when he was five years old.   He performed and conducted in his local church and school as a teenager and later went on to gain a degree in music education at McNeese State University, Louisiana.  He performed solo for various ensembles that came from the Shenandoah Conservatory of Music and moved on to work with Robert Shaw and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and in the offshoot choral ensemble, the Robert Shaw Chamber Singers.  As a conductor he has led school ensembles in festival clinics, members of the Atlanta Symphony and Forth Worth Symphony and since 1986 has conducted the choir and orchestra from Peachtree Corners Baptist Church.  He became the president of the Performing Arts Committee of the Gwinnett Council for the Arts and in 1995 he became a founder of the Gwinnett Philharmonic who he has been music director and conductor for ever since.
