Aspen Music Festival and School 2016!

I am thrilled to announce that I have accepted an offer to study and perform with Aspen Opera Theater Center at the 2016 Aspen Music Festival and School! This is one of America's premier classical music training programs and I will have the amazing opportunity to study voice with internationally-acclaimed tenor Vinson Cole (Metropolitan Opera, La Scala, UMKC).  Other voice faculty members include Stephen King (Rice), W. Stephen Smith (Northwestern and author of The Naked Voice) and the amazing, GRAMMY-award winning "peoples' diva" soprano Renee Fleming!  This program has come at the perfect time in my soon-to-be postgraduate life, so stay tuned for updates on casting in Aspen as well as future fundraising opportunities.
