June Update

Hello all!

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!

Introducing: From Avant-Garde to Cabaret

imageHello all! With yet another Holy Week behind me, I now am focusing my efforts on performing a new set of works by the talented composer and pianist Dr. Timothy Melbinger. I am a mezzo-soprano soloist in his new set of works premiering on April 17th at 2 pm at Penn State Altoona. I invite you to join me for the performance of these works!

Miscellaneous updates: I added “He was despised” to completed repertoire and began adding performance dates to completed repertoire. Check that out if you are so inclined and I updated performance dates.

Completed “Sonata in G Major Op. 14 No. 2: I. Allegro”

Hello all,

Just a quick update to announce I finished studying Beethoven’s “Sonata in G Major Op. 14 No. 2: I. Allegro” and updated the current repertoire and completed repertoire pages. It was certainly quite the feat for me, I was able to perform it from memory last Sunday on February 28th in State College. I don’t consider it perfect, but Beethoven reportedly said to one of his students that playing accidental notes was not as important as playing with the correct feeling and passion of the piece, according to Ferdinand Ries. Either way, I consider it a success, as I find Beethoven sonatas to be particularly difficult.

My next piano projects include continuing to study “Les sons et les parfums tournent dans l’air du soir” by Debussy and a new piece, “III. Romanze” from 4 Klavierstucke Op. 32 by Schumann. I am so excited to play a piece by Schumann.

Introduction as new adjunct

Hello all! I have begun my first week teaching Music 100 at Penn Highlands Community College as an adjunct faculty member. Penn Highlands has posted a press release about the new faculty members, which I have also updated on the press page. You may view the article at this link. I also updated the performances page with updated performance dates.

My vocal performance endeavors have been halted for a few weeks due to contracting the flu last month, and developing bronchitis two weeks later after recovering from the flu. I will be continuing to rest my vocal endeavors and easing my voice back into my usual repertoire once I’ve recovered from bronchitis.
