In 1974 Marc Sengin graduated from the University of Hartford HARTT COLLEGE OF MUSIC (now The Hartt School) as a clarinet major, with a degree in Music Ed. After graduating, he performed full-time in nightclub & disco bands on sax, flute, clarinet, and vocals, later followed by years of performing in “wedding” bands while maintaining a day job.
Following a revelation in 1987, Marc became passionately involved with fine wine. His quest for knowledge and experience was insatiable. In 1999 he began to recork “Old & Rare” wines for collectors. His tasting experience includes several thousand bottles of these wines dating back as far as the mid-19th century. This experience is unique and unequalled and his knowledge is extensive. For over ten years, he represented importers & distributors of very high quality small-production wineries from France, Italy, Australia, Germany, Austria, Portugal, and the US. He has visited many of these wineries, frequently staying at the homes of winemakers. He is available for consultation.
Marc’s love of musical performance was re-initiated in 1995 after years of absence, only now it was something different altogether. He combined his eternal love for singing with self-taught acoustic guitar accompaniment. The selections are the “Folk & Pop Songs of the 60′s & 70′s”, some of the greatest songs ever written in this genre. You know… the songs of Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, Joni Mitchell, Beatles, John Denver, Crosby-Stills-and Nash, etc.
These songs need to remembered and kept alive through performance. In addition to the music, the messages can be profound.
Marc now performs as a solo artist and his musical services are available for private parties, cocktails, community events, dedications, background music, funerals, retirement communities, restaurants, coffee houses, etc.
