If you’ve heard what sounds like an Irish tenor belting out “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’” on a porch on Orange Avenue, or even on Main Street, you’ve heard Steve Gill.
An actor, director, singer and theater arts teacher, the longtime Los Altos resident has long known the power of song and the joy it can bring.
Gill has performed with TheatreWorks, American Musical Theatre, San Jose Stage Company, West Bay Opera Company and Foothill Music Theatre, as well as putting on his own shows with a variety of accompanists. After retiring from teaching at Menlo School, he estimates doing 300 shows at retirement homes, senior centers and private parties, as well as an annual show at Foothills Congregational Church for the past five years.
