The Splendors of Naples

October 29, 2010

I’m enjoying my time here in Austin, working with the  Texas Early Music Project on “The Splendors of Naples:  Gesualdo through Pergolesi”, in honor of the 300th anniversary of Giovanni Battista Pergolesi‘s birth.  The Artistic Director, Daniel Johnson, is working with me, two other award-winning soloists — Jenifer Thuyssen and Stephanie Prewitt, and many other wonderful soloists, to perform with his exceptional Baroque orchestra.  If you’re in the area this weekend, please join us for one of our delightful performances:

Scarlatti and Vivaldi

October 18, 2010

I performed in a wonderful concert last week at St Paul’s Chapel at Columbia University.  I sang Scarlatti’s “Motet:  Infirmata, Vulnerata” and Vivaldi’s “Stabat Mater”.  The acoustics were amazing and I look forward to performing and recording these pieces again next spring.  I’ll let you know when the dates are set!
