Do you also have a non-singing "day job"? If so, what do you do?
I serve on the music faculties of Mt. San Antonio College and Los Angeles Valley College.
Where else do you teach/gig/conduct/sing/perform?
I recently stepped into the roles of Assistant Conductor of Pacific Chorale and Interim Choir Director at St. Matthew's Episcopal Church of Pacific Palisades. I also sing with and sometimes conduct the Contemporary Choral Collective of Los Angeles.
I just sang my first solo with LAMC this past spring on the Wade in the Water concert, and recently guest conducted the Horizon Chamber Choir - including a few friends from the Master Chorale!
Highlights of your musical career:
Singing solo at Disney was definitely one of the craziest experiences I've ever had, and getting to conduct a concert of Bach, Brahms, and Reger was pretty cool, too.
Favorite choral work(s):
Frank Martin - Mass for Double Choir
A defining moment of favorite LA Master Chorale onstage experience:
First solo with the Master Chorale this past spring!
What are you listening to these days?
Brahms, Bach, Reich, Tinlicker, Röyksopp, and Knife Party
Anything you'd like to add about yourself?
It has been a thrill to sing with LAMC!
Where do you live in L.A.?
