Attention Bay Area friends: I'll be returning to Stockton Opera in January to sing Gretel in Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel. It's a perfect family show for the Holiday season, so I hope to see you there. For more info, head to the Schedule page.
In June of this year, I had the honor of giving the world premier of Eugene Drucker's "Levertov Settings" at Carnegie Hall's Weill Hall in collaboration with the Steinem Quartet and the New Music for Strings festival. It was an honor and a thrill to give a word premier at the iconic Weill Hall!
Check out the updated Media page to see a video of me performing Ligeti's tour-de-force Mysteries of the Macabre with the Stony Brook Symphony and Eduardo Leandro last year.
