The December 2015 Metropolitan Advent performance of Handel's Messiah was very well received.  It was heartwarming to hear so many positive comments from audience members for my performance of "O Thou That Tellest Good Tidings to Zion." Thank you!

 A show is in the works for June at the Argyle Country Club in Silver Spring.

The December 6, 2015 performance of "Amahl and the Night Visitors" by Gian-Carlo at Metropolitan was a big success. We got a standing O and many people complimented the show; and yours truly in particular......pardon me for blushing!

Thanks to all my supporters who made it out on October 24, 2015. If you missed it, I was engaged to perform with the Washington Metropolitan Women's Chorus at their annual memorial concert in honor of Susie Kim.  I sang Memory from CATS with choral backup on the stage of the Kreeger Auditorium at the Jewish Community Center.  On stage with me were several opera singers from Northern Virginia Opera Company.

On December 22, 2013 at 1:30 PM and 2:30 PM, I sang at the National Gallery Sculpture Hall at a free live concert featuring O Holy Night among other favorites. 

Christmas Eve Metropolitan Memorial United Methodist Church on December 24, 2013 at 10:25 PM you could hear beautiful music with choir and instruments, plus soloists, myself included singing O Holy Night as a solo.

We had a very successful Messiah performance with chorus and orchestra at Metropolitan on Sunday, December 8, 2013, with lots of good feedback on my alto solo, O Thou That Tellest. Below is a picture of me with the other soloists, left to right, soprano Rachel Goldman, tenor Ian Urriola, Bruce Caviness our organist and choir director, baritone Larry Boggs Jr., and me.

2013 summer was full of opportunities to sing at Metropolitan, including Bernstein's Simple Song with flute, voice and guitar; and The Prayer, a duet you may have heard sung by Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion, which I performed with Ian Urriola, my young tenor colleague at "the Met"! We gave a repeat performance this past Saturday, December 14 at the Woman's Club of Chevy Chase for their annual Christmas party. In addition I sang Gesu Bambino by Pietro Yon, a warmly received rendition.

I hope you saw VLOC's The Red Mill. http://www.vloc.org/the-red-mill.html in June of '13, a hilarious show with vaudevillian and Broadway elements. I played Bertha, a wealthy Dutch widow, complete with accent! See my Facebook page for more fun photos of the show.
