What year did you join Choral Artists? 2023

What is your favorite choral work?
This is almost an impossible question to answer but I remember having transcendental moments in the Verdi Requiem in Washington, DC and the last chord of Mendelssohn's "Elijah", under the baton of legendary conductor Zubin Mehta.

What was your favorite musical moment?
I have loved Barry Manilow since I was 15 years old, so getting the opportunity to sing with him 3 separate times on "A Capitol Fourth" in Washington, DC where I performed for 9 consecutive years, comes to heart and mind!

When I am not singing you will find me:
Teaching private piano and voice and working out with weights and attempting pickleball.

I give back to my community by:
Caring for feral cats and helping to fundraise for their organizations.
