Personal Information

I was born in Boston, Massachusetts on February 4, 1950 to Roger Voisin & Martha Voisin. I have one younger sister, Anne, who lives in West Stockbridge with her family. During the summers, our Voisin family lived in Stockbridge, Massachusetts and both Anne and I worked at Tanglewood as well as attended concerts by the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Latin School and Boston English High Schools were where I completed my high school studies. While in high school, I had the good fortune to solo with the Boston Pops with Arthur Fiedler conducting. After attending Oberlin Conservatory (1969-1971) and the New England Conservatory (1971-1972), I started my orchestral career in Syracuse, New York. I am married to Pamela Voisin (trumpet player) and have three daughters, Christiane, Maria, and Candice. I now am semi-retired and living in Columbus, North Carolina.

Volunteer Experience

One of the most important gifts that we can give the world is Volunteering. That’s why I volunteer.

Reunification, or Guardianship, or Adoption are the options for resolution to this traumatic event in a child’s life.

Meals on Wheels (2018-Present) My wife, Pam, and I team up to deliver meals to our neighbors in Polk County who need food delivery. The mission of Meals on Wheels is to provide hot, nutritious meals to homebound seniors who are unable to shop or prepare their own meals. This program provides services that allow seniors to live in their homes with dignity and independence as long as possible.
