It has become obvious the past few days in Tacoma that fall is upon us. We usually get a nice early fall surge of warm temperatures and even a little sunshine, but the rain and chill of the last few days definitely signifies a close to the summer. I actually welcome the season; as it gets harder and harder to spend copious amounts of time out enjoying the warm weather, I seem to spend more and more time learning music, which I really ought to be doing continually :)
It promises to be a very busy and enjoyable next few months. In October, I will be performing Kam Morrill's one-act opera "Love's Fool" (as Don Perlimpin), a contemporary piece based on a story by Garcia Lorca. Performances will be October 17 and 18 in the Seattle area. November brings two exciting projects: Handel's "Messiah", to be performed with period instruments, at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church in Magnolia (Friday 11/20 7:00pm) and Verdi's "Rigoletto" (I will be singing Marullo) with Concert Opera of Seattle (Saturday 11/21 7:00pm @ Redmond Performing Arts Center). Not long after, I will return to Puget Sound Concert Opera for "Cosi fan tutte" (Guglielmo) to be performed in Seattle, Bellevue and Friday Harbor from December 5-12.
Stay tuned for more news as it comes!!!
