Highlights of your musical career: Right now, all else seems dwarfed by the touring production of di Lasso’s Lagrime di San Pietro. However, I got to sing a solo during evensong at Westminster Abbey, I got to participate in LAMC’s tour and recording of Adams’ The Gospel According to the Other Mary, I performed in Handel’s Radamisto at Palacio de Belles Artes in Mexico City, and I was on the LA Chamber Singers’ 2006 Grammy-winning recording Padilla: Sun of Justice. I’ve had many opportunities to do some mind-bendingly beautiful things...I am grateful beyond words.
Favorite choral work(s): I’d just as soon pick a favorite child.
A defining moment of favorite LA Master Chorale onstage experience: Cutting off the final chord of Britten’s War Requiem together, though the lights had extinguished and Maestro Maazel was no longer visible...
What are you listening to these days? Lagrime di San Pietro. On repeat.

Where do you live in L.A.? Long Beach
What L.A. experience do you consider essential for visitors/newcomers? Drive to Mt. Wilson on a clear evening and watch the lights of the entire LA Basin emerge as the sun sets.
