Highlights of your musical career:
Being a part of the choir that performed with Hans Zimmer, his band, and an orchestra this spring at both weekends of Coachella was pretty crazy and fun. Every time I sing at the Hollywood Bowl, on a historic L.A. sound stage, or at Disney Hall, it's a dream and a privilege.
A defining moment of favorite LA Master Chorale onstage experience:
The Water Passion was a really special concert for me, likewise the High School Choir Festival in 2016, for which I wrote my first choral piece (dedicated to my Mom, with poetry by my sister) and performed it with my awesome LAMC colleagues. That was an unforgettable experience.
