About Me

 I received my formal education at the University of Toronto, earning a Bachelor of Music in Performance. I have performed for many prestigious organizations, including the Elmer Iseler Singers, the Elora Festival Singers, and Tafelmusik Chamber Choir. ​In 2014, I returned to school to continue my education, but still maintained a few singing engagements. In December of that year I debuted with the Nota Bene Baroque Players performing as Second Soprano in Bach's Magnificat.  

Recent Activity

Recent engagements include Mozart's Mass in C Minor with Masterworks of Oakville Chorus & Orchestra, Bach's Cantatas 147 and 80 with Pax Christie Chorale, A Ceremony of Carols with the Toronto Chamber Choir, and Handel's Solomon with Masterworks of Oakville. I also recently had the pleasure of preparing a recital featuring, among other 20th Century composers, the composition "Chamber Music" by Canadian Alan Heard. Since 2016, I have been focusing on developing a new Early Music group called Kammerchor London, where I perform and direct.
