About

I recently graduated with my Master's degree from New England Conservatory in Vocal Performance. My undergraduate degree is in Composition from LaGrange College. I really enjoy programing music and I currently have sets for "An Evening in Naples," "What a Weill Evening (The music of Kurt Weill)," "The Three Stages of Love," and "My Wild Irish Set." I am always creating new programs and am currently preparing an all Charles Ives set, a religious set, and an opera aria set.
