The 2008-2009 season was a busy and turbulent one for me. I took on a second teaching position, which seemed like a wise financial move, while still maintaining a fairly busy performing schedule. It was too much.
I am grateful that JMU gave me enough students this year that I could afford to drop the second teaching job. This also gives me the time to become more active as a performer again.
Things will be slow to ramp back up, but I’m coming to Philadelphia again this spring to perform with Tempesta di Mare (for the fourth season in a row) and will be returning after a long hiatus to the Carmel Bach Festival this summer, where I will sing the role of Jesus in Bach’s St. Matthew Passion. I’m also looking forward to the release of “Le Deserteur” which I recorded with Opera Lafayette for Naxos last year.
This website will get a facelift, new headshots are being taken, and my bio will be truly updated for the first time in years. I’m even planning a new solo CD…
But first, sleep.
