It was a pleasure to take charge of the Music Direction at Timber Lake Playhouse for the play of Junie B. Jones. This is a bright and inspiring story of a young girl, as she adventures through the trials and tribulations of elementary school. Here's a clip of Story of My Life featuring Allie Grace, Jesús Barajas, Alex Papanstasopoulos, Jono Mammel, Katie Snyder, and Olivia Belfie.
My unique approach to rehearsal emphasizes the individual experience through music making. The process of crafting a musical performance can be tedious and exhausting. Through the choral rehearsal process, first and foremost, we must enjoy it. Every rehearsal should provide a safe space for emotional expression and social connection. I strive to make each rehearsal full of positive vulnerability and abundant joy with high energy, engagement, and passionate direction.
