December is an exciting month. Yesterday I won First Place in the Palm Springs Opera Guild Competition. Thank you PSOG for the lovely event. Later this month I will make my debut singing the Bass Solos in Handel's Messiah with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra under the leadership of the incredible maestro John Nelson. I feel so lucky to get to work with him again. He is truly an incredible artist and I learn so much from each experience. Can't wait.
