Do you also have a non-singing "day job"? If so, what do you do?
Yes. I am the full time mother of three active boys age seven and under. It keeps me quite busy.
Where else do you teach/gig/conduct/sing/perform?
I am the Conductor's Assistant for The Orange County Millennial Choirs and Orchestra. I also sing as a first soprano with their Grand Chorus.
Highlights of your musical career:
Performing Amina in La Sonnambula in Italy in front of an all Italian audience and receiving compliments on my Italian accent.
Favorite choral work(s):
Chichester Psalms, Verdi Requiem, Ceremony of Carols.
A defining moment of favorite LA Master Chorale onstage experience:
Every performance is amazing to me. The very act of making music with the finest musicians in the area in the beautiful Walt Disney Concert Hall with Grant Gershon at the helm makes every performance my favorite.
Anything you'd like to add about yourself?
I'm grateful that my husband and three little boys support me in my vocal endeavors.
What L.A. experience do you consider essential for visitors/newcomers?
Seeing a concert at the Hollywood Bowl.
