At 10, Brandon began cantoring at Blessed Sacrament Church under the guidance of Sister Mary Rose Romeo. After graduating from Mercyhurst Prep, Brandon attended Baldwin Wallace College-Conservatory of Music and received a BA in Music and Arts Management. He will earn a Master of Arts in Liturgical Studies from the Catholic Theological Union of Chicago in spring 2020.

“My relationship with the sisters has had a profound impact on my spiritual journey. I continue to grow in living out the Gospel commandments of love of God and love of neighbor.”
