I enjoy an eclectic array of solo & ensemble singing.

I performed with Esperanza Spalding in the world première of Wayne Shorter's opera ...(Iphigenia). I was a soloist on Carnegie Hall's Perelman Stage in the world première of Heidi Breyer's Amor Aeternus: A Requiem for the Common Man. I have been a soloist with the Boston Pops, performing the song "Christmas Is A-Comin'" six times with the orchestra at Symphony Hall (& also providing the speaking voice of Dr. Seuss's Grinch). I have given numerous solo performances of music by J.S. Bach with Emmanuel Music (BWV 90, 92, 106, 163) & Cantata Singers (BWV 130, 149, 248V, & the B minor mass), plus many solo performances in other concert works such as Handel's Messiah, Hadyn's The Creation, Buxtehude's Membra Jesu Nostri, & Fauré's Requiem. I have toured & recorded with Boston Baroque, Skylark, Ensemble Altera, Nightingale Vocal Ensemble, the Advent Choir, the March Chapel Choir, & many more.

“From the luminous chorales to the intricate counterpoint, the 28-voice ensemble sang with the most confidence and command that I can ever remember hearing from a Boston Baroque chorus.”
