A defining moment of favorite LA Master Chorale onstage experience:
There are too many to list. I love performing and making music and truly enjoy all of my experiences.
What are you listening to these days?
I am slowly building up the song list on my iPod. I listen to lots of classic rock 'n roll.
Anything you'd like to add about yourself?
I am thrilled to sing in the LA Master Chorale. To be part of a choral instrument that is capable of making every possible vocal sound is definitely a highlight of my musical career.
