Casting/Show Info: Voice Recital

After a positive audition yesterday, I've been chosen to participate in The bART Center for Music's (formerly Barthelmes Conservatory) Spring Open Concert.

I'll be singing Puccini's O Mio Babbino Caro.

I have studied voice with John Townsend at The bART since last fall, and have loved the chance to collaborate with him while learning more about how to really use my singing voice.

The concert will be held Tuesday, May 14, time and location TBD, and will feature students from both the Conservatory and the Music Center.

Very Big News: MFA in Acting

After a rigorous preparation and audition period this last November-January, I am very excited to announce that I have been accepted to the MFA in Acting program at the University of Alabama's Department of Theatre & Dance.  I will begin classes as well as a teaching assistantship in August.

The program lasts three years, and includes training in voice, movement, classical works, musical theatre voice and dance, on-camera acting, as well as classes in other areas of the theater craft.

I am so very excited for the opportunity to invest three years in intensive training and hands-on work, for the chance to really hone my craft and enhance my career opportunities in the performing arts.

A special thank you to Jenny Guy, Jeri Smith, Courtneay Sanders, and Robert Walters for their coaching, and especially to my husband, Chris, for his support and love.

I will end this post with my first official internet posting of Alabama spirit:

Roll tide!
