Cha-Ching! Thank you CAP!
I’m so pleased to announce that I have received a grant from the Community Arts Partnership to put together a new recording of songs and arias from the Renaissance and Baroque. I can’t wait to get started – Thank you for supporting artists in Tompkins County, especially us Early Music types – I know we can be…
Jory to the world!
Last night I attended the NYS Baroque concert featuring Harpsichord player Jory Vinikour performing Bach’s Goldberg Variations. A wonderful concert – what a talent, also charming, and the audience was quite spellbound for the 90 minutes straight that he played from memory. I was late- I had a good excuse though, an audition for Opera Ithaca (check…

German fairy tales were written to scare children into being good. I’d say that fits in perfectly with Ithaca’s…
Yes, I’m singing at a graveyard tomorrow….
Alright it’s not actually at a graveyard, but it is for the Greensprings Natural Burial Ground’s 5th Anniversary, so I’ll assume there are graves somewhat nearby. I will be joined by Jeff Tripoli (drums), John Wysocki (keyboard) and Arlo Feirman (bass), performing a set of my original songs, including a spankin’ brand new one! Ti-Ti…
