Soprano I

What can make a native Brooklynite cross the water into the wilds of Jersey City?! Why, NRS, of course! I discovered NRS in 2021 when my friend joined and invited me to the concert. I was hooked and ever since, I have been devouring all the videos on Youtube and waiting for the day I could join myself… and here I am! I have loved music since childhood, so it is no surprise that I made it my career. I studied classical vocal performance at LaGuardia HS of Music and the Performing Arts (FAME) and Mannes College of Music. I thought I was headed for a career in opera but then in 2001, I was cast as Sarah’s Friend in Ragtime and everything changed. I, now, really wanted to do Broadway and in 2019, my dream came true when I was cast in Rocktopia: A Classical Revolution. I was also the lead in the long-running off-broadway musical Sistas and, most recently, Ms. Crosby in The Goodbye Girl directed by David Zippel, starring Sierra Boggess, Santino Fontana, and Christopher Sieber. Thank you for welcoming me with open arms and I am so excited to go on this musical journey with you all!
