Laureate Gala / Carnegie Hall


A fantastic night! As a result of my award winning audition this spring, I just had my Carnegie Hall debut as a singer & composer during the Laureate Gala. Thanks to Anna Ouspenskaya & James Welch of Sound Espressivo & Progressive Musicians for making this happen !! With collaborators such as brilliant pianist Chris Au as well as the amazing string quartet members of The New York Chamber Players Orchestra & Maestro Giacomo Franci, it was an absolute thrill to sing Stockhausen in the first set – and Dunér during the second set! Video TBA.
