I always jump at the opportunity to travel back to my hometown of Madison, Wisconsin to play music (especially early music!) This past December I was featured as a soloist with Madison youth choirs performing a program related to Shakespeare.
Tafelmusik, a highly successful early music group based in Toronto, runs a Winter institute for young early music professionals. I was happy to attend this past January to work on theorbo and baroque guitar with the lute virtuoso, Lucas Harris. This year’s theme was Italian Baroque instrumental music.
Third Coast Baroque is a spectacular new baroque group in Chicago led by Rubén Dubrovsky | Artistic Director

I’m thrilled to be included in the Newberry Consort’s program Kemp’s Jig as a young artist mentee. I’ll be playing renaissance guitar and lute with a violin band and great collection of actors featuring a master of improvisation, dance and baroque guitar, Steve Player.
I am so refreshed and happy to have just concluded a successful tour of Scotland with the company Chamber Opera Chicago. Last year we were able to tour through England for 3 weeks in 5 cities. This year we were lucky enough to have been invited to the Edinburgh festival. What an incredible experience!
