“I aspire to help singers find the clear, resonant sound that is the core of their voice.  We work to discover free and healthy ways to hook into breath energy, easy onset of tone, and clear understanding of text for optimal expression.  Our Monday night rehearsals are filled with energy and good fun as we work to prepare the music. Tapestry Singers’ audiences have come to expect something out of the ordinary, new music to challenge their sensibilities, and familiar tunes that are interestingly arranged. My goal is to inspire both singers and listeners so we can be woven in song.”
