Where else do you teach/gig/conduct/sing/perform? I am a guest soloist with orchestras and choruses throughout the United States and occasionally abroad. This year I have been singing the solos in Beethoven's 9th everywhere!! First in Los Angeles, then in March I sang it in Germany with a multi-national production and in December I will be singing it in Mexico. Between the solos and the LAMC performances I will have sung in 8 different productions just in 2017!

Highlights of your musical career: The recent concert in Germany with 280 in the chorus from all over the world - that was exciting! And, singing the National Anthem at Dodger Stadium… nothing like 40,000 people cheering you.
Favorite choral work(s):
Bach B-Minor Mass
A defining moment of favorite LA Master Chorale onstage experience:
Anytime we sang with the Luckman Jazz Orchestra. That is so much fun!
What are you listening to these days?
If I'm not studying a specific piece it will be Henry Connick Jr., or Brazilian Radio on Pandora.

What L.A. experience do you consider essential for visitors/newcomers? Anything the LAMC is singing, of course! Also, La Brea Tar Pits - We premiered David O's piece A Map of Los Angeles and I loved the prehistoric creatures featured in it!! That would have been a 2-fer; LAMC and a reference to the Tar Pits.
