Musical Performance – Singing

Groups I Have Sung With — Present and Past

Over the years I have studied voice with Justin Staebell and Charles Peterson.

St Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral Choir ~ 1984-Present

St Mark’s has a rich musical tradition and hosts an annual music series involving the choir and other guest musicians. The Cathedral Choir performs for regular Sunday worship and Evensong services, for special holy day celebrations and at concerts that are part of the music series.

In 2019 the Cathedral Choir enjoyed a one-week performance residency at Canterbury Cathedral, the Mother Church of the worldwide Anglican Communion and seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Minnesota Chorale ~ 2005-2007, 2012-Present

The Chorale serves as the “go-to” symphonic chorus of the Minnesota Orchestra. I have performed a variety of major symphonic choral and operatic works under the orchestra’s regular and guest conductors. In addition, I have been tapped by Music Director Kathy Salzman Romey to perform for projects ranging from a staged version of the Fauré Requiem to a choreographed performance of Orff’s Carmina Burana.
