Kitchen Opera Company debut!

November 12, 2012

I am proud to announce a debut of my latest adventure – The Kitchen Opera Company.  Last week we did a taping of a segment and our performance will be aired on November 15th nationally.  For NYC you can watch it at WLNY 10/55 at 6 am.

Over the weekend, I thoroughly enjoyed performing with Parthenia, a Consort of Viols. We did a program of songs from the time of Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots. In the program, we did the premier of two song arrangements by the wonderful composer Richard Einhorn: “Ca’ the Yowes” and “Lament of Mary, Queen of Scotts”, both written by famous Robert Burns.

I’m delighted to be singing on the Better Show, which will be recorded on November 8th, 2012 at 11am EST.  The repertoire will include a few original songs from my latest venture, Kitchen Opera Company, which encourages fun sing-alongs about one of our favorite things — food!  Join us and enjoy some of our “sing delicious” recipes!


Meet my new green friend

November 2, 2012

Hurricane Sandy … not much to say that has not already been said. However, it is an opportunity to venture into new realms! Meet ‘Cain’ aka ‘Baby’ — we bonded  yesterday on the Upper West Side.

His owner is the fabulous violinist, Lara St. John.  Lara and I will be premiering five short duets entitled “Now Fatal Change”, written by the very talented Tarik O’Regan.  Our performance will be part of the Twelve Night Festival, which will take place on December 28, 2012 at Trinity Church on 79 Broadway, lower Manhattan.

Please join us!

No plans on Sunday afternoon?  Need a moment of relaxation?  Here’s an idea:  Please join me this Sunday, November 4th, 2012 at 4 pm EDT, when I will be singing with Dongsok Shin at Corpus Christi Church.

Dongsok and I will be performing the “Flaming Fire”, which is just one of the extraordinary songs on our program this weekend, featuring music from 16th century England and Scotland.  The concert includes two Robert Burns songs arranged by Richard Einhorn, “Ca’ the Yowes” and “Lament of Mary Queen of Scots”, commissioned by the courts of Mary Stuart and Elizabeth I, rulers of England.
