Where else do you teach/gig/conduct/sing/perform?
I am a guest soloist with orchestras and choruses throughout the United States and occasionally abroad. This year I have been singing the solos in Beethoven's 9th everywhere!! First in Los Angeles, then in March I sang it in Germany with a multi-national production and in December I will be singing it in Mexico. Between the solos and the LAMC performances I will have sung in 8 different productions just in 2017!
Beethoven 9: Los Angeles Daiku, Luneburg Symphony, Pasadena Symphony, Japanese American Cultural Center Concert
Verdi Requiem: Santa Monica Symphony
Highlights of your musical career:
The recent concert in Germany with 280 in the chorus from all over the world - that was exciting! And, singing the National Anthem at Dodger Stadium… nothing like 40,000 people cheering you.
Favorite choral work(s):
A defining moment of favorite LA Master Chorale onstage experience:
What are you listening to these days?
Anything you'd like to add about yourself?
Fun fact: I am a 5th generation Californian.
What L.A. experience do you consider essential for visitors/newcomers?
Anything the LAMC is singing, of course! Also, La Brea Tar Pits - We premiered David O's piece A Map of Los Angeles and I loved the prehistoric creatures featured in it!! That would have been a 2-fer; LAMC and a reference to the Tar Pits.
