I am a firm believer in modeling growth and performance as a Fine Arts Teacher.  Here are a few samples of my work. 

First, the Chicago Chorale, which I conducted in rehearsal as well as sang.  Solo work: Tombeau dans un Parc, Melodies Passageres, Samuel Barber.  New music: John Carbon's song cycle, Letters From Abigail, analyzed in my master's thesis. Also included is a 2014 short snippet of my orchestral conducting for the Tony Award winning musical, The Drowsy Chaperone.  And in April 2013, I performed as chamber work soloist "Outside the Box" music festival at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, an original work by SIUC alum, Mr. Matthew Blessing. Choral samples are from May, 2019.
