Performance Vocalist

As a singer, I love to perform light, lyric coloratura soprano repertoire, especially from early operas or oratorios of the Baroque and Classical periods. As a performer, I love to present “theme concerts” centered around a particular idea, genre, or season of the year. Some of my favorite theme concerts have included groups of newly composed songs by living composers on the New Dimensions New Music Series at Austin Peay State University in 2005 and 2006, a program featuring art songs, folk songs, and opera arias entitled “Songs from Appalachia” at Bluefield College in 2011, and a program of contemporary and traditional sacred songs entitled “Great Songs of Faith” presented in Boaz, AL, in 2018.

I also enjoy programming small groups of different types of repertoire and finding interesting, unusual, and humorous things about those pieces to share with my audiences as program notes. A recent example of this was a grouping of songs performed at Snead State Community College in 2023 that included Handel’s “Let The Bright Seraphim” with piano and trumpet, Strauss’s “Zueignung”, and Duke Ellington’s “Do Nothing ‘Til You Hear From Me”. I love singing and teaching the “soprano ingenue” repertoire from pre-1960s musical theatre productions, and I love singing gospel and Contemporary Christian repertoire, both in church and in community venues.
