Since January, have been rehearsing (testing before each rehearsal & masked during) with Grace Chorale of Brooklyn for this weekend's performance of "The Constitution: a Secular Oratorio" for SATB chorus, soloists, & orchestra by Benjamin Yarmolinsky. It's been a wonderfully challenging piece & a delight to get to the beautiful historical Brooklyn Heights each week. Join us if you can!

Artists’ take on Queen and David Bowie’s classic features makeshift quarantine instruments

05/08/2020

So many of the recitals pictured in this album (& many more lessons & rehearsals) occurred @ Shetler Studios & Theatres over the years. The toll #Covid19 has taken/is taking on lives is beyond heartbreaking. Its toll on businesses - like this venue so very important to the livelihoods of NYC artists now closing - is a beast of its own.

Thanks for the memories.

My candle burns at both ends...

A Southern belle who grew up with religious, classical and pop music, discovered musical theater and French song in Paris, then N.Y.C. where Jazz and cabaret took over... Awfully fond of the key of Gb, and has been fortunate to gig with some of the best rhythm sections out there. As well, a published poet, who has featured abroad and around town. Her book of original poetry, “Document,” came out in 2018 with NoNet Press.
