summer flashback and fall preview

Happy August! A time when it’s hard to fathom the end of these lazy(ier) days, yet plans haven’t necessarily slowed for the future…

Summer flew by for me this year, partly because I married guitarist James Moore in June, but also because I served as vocal coach/rehearsal pianist for the Ouroboros Trilogy, a trio of the one-act operas Naga, Madame White Snake and Gilgamesh. Produced by Beth Morrison Projects (and Madame White Snake Productions) and premiering in Boston this September, I worked with many familiar faces in the three back-to-back rehearsal periods that spanned nine weeks total. Whew!

Looking ahead, the 2016-17 season yields two very exciting premieres, the World Premiere of Mata Hari in the 2017 PROTOTYPE festival this January, and the West Coast Premiere of Thumbprint with LA Opera next June. I’ve been part of each project since its beginning stages, and they are even more rewarding for me since not only have I been involved in the developmental workshops, but I’ve always been a member of the band as well. New York and LA, here we come!

Lastly (for now ;), stay tuned for details about a very special project I’m developing with soprano Laura Bohn and director Mary Birnbaum for National Sawdust in March 2017! Hint: it translates to “The Human Voice”…more when we’re ready!
