choral conductor ~ ~ ADEI nonprofit and arts leader ~ voice teacher ~ singer ~ lecturer
I am a coloratura soprano, specializing in art song, early music, oratorio work, and contemporary music. I hold a BA in Music in Vocal Performance from the University of California, Santa Cruz (1992), where I studied with Patrice Maginnis and graduated with recital honors. I have also studied with Susan Jones at the University of Iowa.
The following vocal samples are from my faculty recital at the University of San Francisco with Jeffrey Swinkin, piano; Bruce Foster, clarinet; Aaron Seeman, accordion.
