I am thrilled to announce that my quarantine project, Please Look, has won the Opera America award for Digital Excellence. It was an amalgamation of ten scenes from recent operatic and choral works from the minimalist and post-minimalist genres. The article on the opera America website can be found here.
I have accepted a position as adjunct faculty teaching classical and musical theater voice with the University of Notre Dame for the 2022-2023 school year. It is a great honor for me to make this step, and has challenged and grown my musical abilities immensely so far.
Over the summer of 2021, I was able to perform with South Bend Lyric Opera in Cavalleria Rusticana as Mamma Lucia. It has been a dream role of mine for a long time, and I am so thankful to this wonderful company for making that dream a reality. Looking forward to more opportunities to make music post-pandemic.
