 Spring 2018 Newsletter 

Hello Friends! I hope this quick note finds you well!  Many of you have expressed an interest in my musical aspirations so I hope you will choose to follow along!  Here are a few updates which I'm excited to share with you!

I am thrilled to have recently sung my debut in Koerner Hall, as a soloist in Opera for All's Spring Concert, led by Maestro Alvaro Lozano Gutierrez.  I hope you'll take a few minutes to listen to "Piangero, la Sorte Mia".  

Some exciting things are in store for Spring/Summer 2018! 

Unapologetically Me

 

Unapologetically Me:  A blog about Emotion and the Larynx

The other day I went for a laryngeal massage.   I have been twice before, when I could not explain the feeling of a lump in my throat and then again when a scratchy feeling just always seemed to be present.  Aaron Low is a Speech Pathologist and he checks for tension in the neck and jaw and larynx; something that many singers struggle with but perhaps don’t pay a lot of attention to.   He massaged my larynx for about an hour, pausing every ten minutes or so ~ our conversation was very interesting!
