As a professional performer, Mr, Haynie has sung both as a chorister and soloist with groups such as the Chattanooga Choral Arts Society, the Carolina Concert Choir, the Asheville Choral Society, Spire Chamber Ensemble, the Tennessee Chamber Chorus and the Santa Fe Desert Chorale.  He has been a featured soloist for works such as Mozart's Requiem, Handel's Messiah, Holsinger's Easter Symphony, Bach's Cantata Nos. 78 and80, Shcubert's Mass in G, Vaughan Williams' Dona Nobis Pacem and Willcock's Lux Perpetua.  Mr. Haynie has sung under the batons of conductors such as David Holsinger, Simon Carrington, Jonathan Willcocks, and John Rutter and has shared the performance stage with mezzo soprano, Susan Graham and soprano, Patricia Racette.
Most Recently, Phillip has been featured on a solo recital for the Asheville Lyric Opera Guild and on a Taste of Opera  where he was hailed as singing with "great passion and tenderness, revealing a voice of great beauty, range and expressiveness."  His operatic roles include "Don Madigua/El Capitan" in Souza's El Capitan, "Pooh-Bah" in Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado, "Dr. Falke" in Strauss' Die Fledermaus, "Papageno" in Mozart's Die Zauberflöte, and "Aeneas" in Purcell's Dido and Aeneas.
This is Mr. Haynie's tenth year as director of the choral program at AC Reynolds and along with his responsibilities to the choral ensembles, he also serves as musical director and conductor for spring musicals and instructs the color guard for the Marching Rocket Band.  Aside from teaching and performing, Phillip is currently serving as section leader for the St. James Episcopal Church Choir in Hendersonville, NC.
"I am honored, humbled and very excited to be a part of the AC Reynolds community.  I hope to maintain long held traditions with this fine choral program while also creating new traditions as the program continues to grow.  My hope for every student who comes through my classroom is that they will find ways to keep music in their lives not only while in my class or ensembles, but for the rest of their lives."
