Hometown performance on lute

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 Winter Institute

16002933_10100512665121811_6919056737707049066_nTafelmusik, 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.

I’d highly recommend this festival to any aspiring early music players!347_003_wide

Debut with the Newberry Consort

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.

Scotland tour with Chamber Opera Chicago

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!

Tosca Lecture

I recently had the privilege of providing a pre-concert lecture about Puccini’s Tosca to classes of St. Josaphat Parish in Lincoln Park.
