A defining moment of favorite LA Master Chorale onstage experience:
For a Halloween themed concert I sang a particularly wild song by Henry Purcell during a strong storm. The storm knocked the lights out in the middle of my song. Undeterred, the band and I used candles from the stage to finish the show while the audience sat in complete darkness. The show must go on!

Built to Spill, Jason Molina, Andrew Bird, Les Doigts de L'Homme, Archangelo Corelli's Concerti Grossi, and many other things
