Artist residency update:
I got to Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts last night, and finished getting settled in this morning.
Here is a picture of the outside of this architecturally amazing building from 1969 I get to live in for the next 2 weeks (including incredible stormy winter Nebraska sky) and my studio space (before I destroyed it with various art projects this evening).

This past December, Ciaran Nagle Tenor and I performed the beautiful "Wexford Carol" with the Boston Civic Symphony and Francisco Noya.
This Christmas song has always been one of my favorites, and it was wonderful to have the opportunity to both orchestrate and perform this.
(The video is literally from the back of the theater, at a Family Holiday Pops concert...excuse the extra noise!)

I spent this morning recording my string arrangement of a new song by James Mills with some of the best musicians around, and Defy Recordings LLC engineering the session.
Truly, a girl couldn’t ask for much more in life
