2019 highlight: Singing in the chorus for Puccini’s opera, “La Boheme.” I auditioned for the opera chorus the day before my birthday last July. I had to wait all the way till late March to begin rehearsals. Our performances were on April 26 & 28, 2019 in Carol Morsani Hall at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Tampa. I enjoyed every bit of the process: from musical rehearsals to staging rehearsals, singing with the orchestra, even having my head wrapped in plastic for a wig mold! Watching the curtain rise on opening night, seeing the conductor and looking out to the excited audience was overwhelming in the most incredible, joyful way. I loved my costume, especially my hat! I loved my castmates and I really loved singing. Heart = full.
