He has cultivated a keen interest in musical theater by working both as a performer and Music Director in many productions of community theatres including: Little Theatre of Wilkes-Barre, Showcase Theater and Music Box Dinner Playhouse.

Larry received a B.S. degree in Music Education from Wilkes College. After graduation he continued his musical studies in voice with Mr. Richard Chapline and is currently a student of Metropolitan Opera baritone Theodore Lambrinos. Larry continues to teach voice privately. He is also an adjunct faculty member of the Communications Department of Luzerne County Community College.
