A Busy Singer is a Happy Singer

The days tick on, and although it's January, Springtime is rolling in! Not just green trees and wild flowers, but the spring opera season brings fun and work!

The Rondine production with Island City opera begins staging one week from today! The music for this show is so fun and flirty, and the whole production is going to be a blast. I'm excited to work on the same show with two different companies back to back. I've been able to take notes on my upcoming role with Pocket Opera, and study my music while observing a more experienced performer in rehearsals. It's validating in so many ways to see others work through the process of learning a role, finding similar struggles with certain passages, and getting a feel for the music with this conductor. It lends a new light to the process, and it's not just me listening to a soundtrack over and over in my car, desperately trying to memorize everything (though, there is lots of that for the conprimario role and the chorus parts I'm singing for sure).

Next up for performances will be Pocket Opera's annual gala. I'm working with a fantastic quartet of singers and we will feature snippets from the whole season. It's going to be our show for the road at nursing homes for the next couple months. I'll also be presenting a vocal recital with pianist David Borac for two nursing homes on Valentine's Day! I'm so excited to play with these ideas. The church's summer concert is already being planned, and I'm hoping to use a similar theme for that.

Be sure to go to my website's "Upcoming Engagement" page and check for dates of shows, where to purchase tickets, and more detailed information. Thanks for checking in!
