I am the captain of the Pinafore.....

So despite my promise to be better about updating my blog all the way back in January, here I am later than expected :) Currently I'm working on Captain Corcoran in "HMS Pinafore" for Lakewood Playhouse, which opens March 26th and runs through April 25th. Stage direction is by Jim Brown, who's the director of opera at PLU. I am pleased to take part in any Gilbert & Sullivan show, but especially this one because it's my first opportunity to sing the Captain!

I had the opportunity to organize an "Opera For Haiti" benefit concert in late January in conjunction with First Lutheran Church in Tacoma, and it was a great success! Just to be joined by so many talented friends was a great pleasure, and we were successful too! (We raised just under $2100!)

I will be a soloist with the Northwest Repertory Singers for their "Night At The Opera" concert this Saturday at Mason Methodist Church, where I'll be singing some selections from Elixir of Love, Lucia di Lammermoor, and Candide.

Hopefully I will be able to update this often, and if you're interested and able, I would love to see you at a show sometime soon!
