Another school year has begun, and I am teaching Music 100 once again at Penn Highlands Community College! In addition to spending another great semester with Penn Highlands this fall, I will also be covering (understudying) a role with Center Stage Opera in New Cumberland, PA, in their upcoming production of the opera Faust by Charles Gounod. Please check out the Current Projects page for more information! I also updated my About page with an updated biography. What an exciting autumn ahead!
Here is a recording from the premiere of the song cycle Anonymous Cabaret by Dr. Timothy Melbinger, premiered in April 2016.
The text is:
“The rabbit has a charming face,
Its private life is a disgrace!
I really dare not name to you,
The awful things that rabbits do;
Things your paper never prints-
They only mention it in hints.
They have such lost degraded souls,
No wonder why they inhabit holes;
When such depravity is found
It can only live underground.”
Two other recordings of pieces from the song cycle can be found on the media page. Enjoy!
I completed one semester of teaching at Penn Highlands Community College and will be returning to teach at Ebensburg in the fall. I also completed a performance of “Anonymous Cabaret” for Dr. Timothy Melbinger. Video of this performance will be available soon. This summer I am studying repertoire and building my technique for various instruments and preparing for recitals in the fall!
