Reflect

After much debate and feelings of major imposter syndrome, I’ve at last decided I want to start writing a weekly blog.

Every Monday, I’ll write about some source of inspiration that I encountered during the week. It may be a book, or a concert, or a podcast…something that itches the spot that says, “Pay attention, this is important.”

My goal in creating this blog is to share resources that have particularly touched me—as an artist and as a human—with others who are interested in “getting curious.” My goal is NOT to critique, to review, or to provide answers, but rather to explore, to ponder, and to ask questions.

I’ll be posting these entries on my website every Monday. Additionally, you can sign up to receive new entries directly in your email inbox each week. To do so, enter your email address in the form at the bottom of the Reflect webpage.

Carnegie Hall Debut

I am making my Carnegie Hall solo debut on Monday, November 12th, performing in the New York Choral Society's concert My Shadow and My Light. I will be performing the baritone solo in Gerald Finzi's Requiem da Camera, written in 1923-24 in honor of Finzi's composition teacher, who was killed in action in 1918. I am so honored and excited to perform this beautiful piece of music with such a wonderful group of musicians!

Tickets will be available in the coming weeks; until then, you can find more info on the concert here. I hope to see you there!

World Premiere of SIMULACRUM

Exciting news: I will be participating in the world premiere of Simulacrum, a multimedia chamber opera written by six different composers to a libretto by Marianna Staroselsky. This is the inaugural project of the PATH New Music Theater, "a collective of composers, musicians, choreographers, and visual artists who curate and produce contemporary new media theater."

Performances are on June 8, 9, and 10 at the 3LD Art & Technology Center in NYC. And bonus, there are $10 early bird tickets available until May 20! After that, general admission tickets will be $20. Check out the trailer below, and I'll hope to see you there!
