I had the great privilege of performing Tom Cipullo's Late Summer with the incredible pianist Clare Longendyke as a part of Calliope's Call's Cross Connections concert a few weeks ago. Here is the full cycle!
I am currently a singing Fellow at the Fall Island Vocal Arts Seminar working on contemporary American art song in Potsdam, NY. I am spending the week singing and working with Stephanie Blythe, Alan Smith, composer Juliana Hall and 8 other fellows. Here is a video of my portion of the first master class with pianist Tatiana Lokhina. You can view the performances and master classes on the Fall Island Vocal Arts Seminar Facebook page.
This weekend we had a fantastic American art song recital with Calliope's Call! I was privileged to perform Late Summer by Tom Cipullo, along with a song from Juliana Hall's cycle Syllables of Velvet, Sentences of Plush. Getting to perform incredible music like this with such world class musicians is one of the great joys of my life, and having the composers present sent me absolutely over the moon! Congrats to everyone involved!
I spent an incredible weekend performing the world premiere of Juliana Hall's song In Closer Bonds of Love To Thee with poetry by Fanny Crosby. Getting to not only to perform with Juliana, but record her song for her upcoming CD of new art song was a true thrill. I'm so grateful to work with such incredible musicians! #artsong #worldpremiere
Thrilled to have won second place in the The American Prize: celebrating American excellence in the arts Women in Opera/Operetta division! I am in the best company with the incredible Chelsea Basler-Aston, and huge shout out to Christine Lyons, Soprano for her third place win! #americanprize#secondplace #teamsoprano
I'm thrilled to be making my solo debut with the Handel and Haydn Society at Jordan Hall tonight! My week got a lot more exciting when I was called in last minute to fill in for a sick soprano, and I've spent the last two days living and breathing this beautiful repertoire. Huge thanks to Scott Allen Jarrett and to all the amazing musicians at H+H who have made this such a loving and wonderful experience. In addition to the motets and chorus parts, I'll be singing two arias from Bach's Cantatas 36 and 147.
