Music

I have loved making music my entire life, especially singing choral music and playing piano.  I have a particular fondness for sensitive performance of Renaissance sacred choral music.  In addition to making music, I also enjoy composing when I can find the time, mostly choral music and hymn descants.

In Princeton, I sing with the choir of Trinity Episcopal Church, and am actively searching for other opportunities, especially with small ensembles.

During the six years I lived in the Los Angeles area, I sang with the following choral ensembles:

LASchola: I was the co-founder and a co-director of this group, which has been performing regularly since 2010.  LASchola sings Renaissance sacred music with a small ensemble in the context of a Latin mass on a monthly basis at St. Thomas the Apostle, Hollywood.

Horizon Music Group:  I was a founding member of this group, which started in 2010.  Under director Christian Campos, Horizon sings a variety of music and several concerts a year, with a particular focus on the choral music of J.S. Bach.

St. James’ Episcopal Church, South Pasadena:  I was the bass section leader for the choir at this church, singing on Sunday mornings, and was also the assistant music director from 2011-2013.

De Angelis Vocal Ensemble:  I sang with this group from 2008 to 2012.  De Angelis performs four or five concerts per year, in the Mission Basilica in San Juan Capistrano and elsewhere, singing a wide variety of music, from Renaissance to contemporary, both sacred and secular. 

St. James’ in the City, Wilshire Boulevard:  I joined the choir of St. James’ in the City for their evensong services once a month, and also sang as part of their Schola Cantorum, who sings compline once a month.  

Los Angeles Chamber Singers:  I joined this Grammy-winning group  in 2010 and sang with them occasionally.

All Saints’ Episcopal Church, Beverly Hills:  I started singing with this choir when I first moved out to California in 2007, and still joined them on occasion for special services after I moved to St. James'.

During college, I sang with the Harvard Glee Club and directed the a cappella group Under Construction, and when I lived in Boston for a year after graduating I sang with the Boston Secession.
