An opera is brewing...

Jul 12, 2021

I've been hard at work on an opera based on the beloved Rosario Ferré story "La muñeca menor." Very excited to be working with Dr. Rachel Chiguluri, Spanish professor at Vanderbilt, and Dr. Benigno Trigo, the author's son and professor of Latin American literature professor, to bring this story (and possibly some creepy life-size dolls) to life!

1st Year at Vanderbilt

Apr 11, 2020

In spite of COVID-19 cutting my first year a little short, I'm extremely thankful for my friends, mentors, and professors at VU. I finished three new pieces—Araburlesque, Windfall, and The Steadfast Tin Soldier, with several more in the works—sang and played in many concerts, and made instant bonds with my classmates.
