Highlights of your musical career:
Being able to bring the music of my childhood to life by participating in the Zelda Reorchestrated (Z.R.E.O) project, singing onstage with the Rolling Stones on their 50th Anniversary Tour, and performing the basso profundo solo in Einojuhani Rautavaara's Vigilia.
Favorite choral work(s):
John Adams' Harmonium, the Duruflé Requiem, Arvo Pärt's Beatitudes.
A defining moment of favorite LA Master Chorale onstage experience:
The premiere performance of Lagrime di San Pietro! What a treat to dig deeply into music of such emotional and spiritual depth and bring it to life in such a visceral way.
