now is as good a time

As I am finishing up a whirlwind several weeks, I think it's the perfect time to finally get my website up and running. I'm not a very wordy person, so this will be brief, but I'm hoping to update here with upcoming performances and events as time goes by, and as life calls for it.

During the past few weekends, I have had the honor of sharing the stage (and sometimes the pit) with the amazing Frederica ("Flicka") von Stade in Hawai'i Opera Theatre's production of Three Decembers by composer Jake Heggie and librettist Gene Sheer, both of whom were in Hawai'i for the run, along with the rest of the original cast, Kristin Clayton and Keith Phares. With performances on four different islands, I think the cast, crew, and orchestra are all due for a long nap, but I am so grateful to have had this wonderful several weeks with so many amazing musicians.

Mahalo, and a hui hou!
