Tom Smith’s own performing career peaked on NBC Coke Time with Eddie Fischer and Debbie Reynolds in the 1950s (American Royal Ball, Kansas City with the Future Farmers of America National Chorus). Tom believes that when you get music under your skin as a child, it’s there forever and that Fort Collins Symphony’s maestros, Will Schwartz and Wes Kenney, and the music of the world’s best, is life-altering and a valuable asset to our community.
Tom chaired the FCS Board of Directors from 1985 to 1986 and chaired the 50th anniversary committee that brought on Wes Kenney.
He is in real estate at Berkshire Hathaway, Rocky Mountain Realtors. Tom has been married to Suzie for 50 years and they have three adult “kids,” plus spouses, and resulting offspring of treble like numbers.
