Summer Performances

It's been a busy summer!  I had a wonderful time participating in some great events:

Americans for the Arts Conference, Nashville TN, June 

It was a real honor to be among such great colleagues and to have the chance to tell my story and talk about how much I believe in the transformative power of the arts.

Festival del Sole, Napa CA, July

What a joy to be a part of this prestigious festival in gorgeous Napa!  It was my first time singing Mexican baroque repertoire outside of Mexico, and I especially enjoyed collaborating with the wonderful musicians from the Sphinx Virtuosi, as well as my dear friend and coach Audrey Saint-Gil.

Portland Summerfest, Portland OR, August

This summer marked an important role debut for me, that of Adalgisa in Bellini's opera Norma.  I was incredibly lucky to sing this role alongside the latest MET Norma, and my close friend, Angela Meade.  The rest of the cast, featured below, were amazing as well: Allan Glassman as Pollione, Richard Zeller as Oroveso, and Liz Baldwin as Clotilde.  It was truly an honor to get to sing with these great voices!
