Steve Kelleher, Musica Antiqua's string specialist, is a former music teacher living in Fort Dodge. Steve is the newest member of the core ensemble, joining the group in 1977. Steve received his music degree from St. Teresa's plus training in data processing from Iowa Central, in Orff-Schulwerk from DePaul in Chicago, and in elementary resource from ISU. With all that training, Steve has been known to take nearly any job (including piano tuning) which allows him to play tennis with his kids and pursue his love of performing. While known for his classical guitar performances, Steve also plays electric bass or traps with local ensembles.
