Ravi Raghuram, an Ambassador for almost five years, resides in St. Louis and studies music at UMSL with Dr. Jim Henry. Ravi counts his mom, Tenacious D, Stevie Wonder, James Taylor, Bill Withers, Crossroads, Punch Brothers, Boyz II Men, Rufus Wainwright, Ben Folds, Vocal Spectrum, The Hi-Lo's, Boswell Sisters, Pete Benson and The Suntones as his many [and varied] musical inspirations. Yes, Ravi did just mention his own mother and Tenacious D in the same sentence....awesome!
In his words, "Every single reharsal and performance is special to me. The Ambassadors of Harmony are a perfect storm of musical energy, membership, direction and repertoire. My favorite moments happen when I'm standing in my spot in the chorus, and hearing every beautiful individual voice around me come together to give physical reality to Jim's vision in real time."
