A dedicated hobbyist, I’m an active musician & performer and couldn’t imagine it any other way! I’ve sung with community and church choirs for over 25 years and also play guitar and flute. I can even occasionally be found performing in community theatre and opera productions.
Musical groups and activities I’m involved with:
This women’s acappella chorus sings four-part harmony in the barbershop style and is a chapter of Sweet Adelines International.
The Hinsdale Chorale is a dedicated group of professional and amateur singers from Hinsdale, Illinois and surrounding communities. Our mission at the Hinsdale Chorale is to enrich the musical culture of Hinsdale and its surrounding neighborhoods by promoting the appreciation of choral singing in our community.
I’ve just joined this group in September 2016, and I can’t wait to enjoy new musical experiences! Lakeside Flutes is a select ensemble of talented flutists from the greater Chicago area. Founded in 1987 by a group of flute enthusiasts, we look forward to continuing to introduce the public to a wide variety of flute literature and to the unique sound of ensemble playing in a flute choir.
I’m active in the music ministry at Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church in Darien, Illinois, where I am a cantor, instrumentalist, and leader of the Joyful Song Ensemble.
North Central College Summer Opera and Theatre
Most summers I participate in community opera and/or musical theatre productions at North Central College in Naperville, IL.
Some groups I have been involved with in the past:
Measure 4 Measure
Measure 4 Measure is a female acappella quartet based in the western suburbs of Chicago. This group has decided to disband in February 2016.
Majestic Flute Trio
A trio of flutists and friends who gather to play and make music together. This ensemble was discontinued in August 2016.
An organization dedicated to the advancement of choral music, the encouragement of participation in group singing, the development of the appreciation of good music, the presentation of choral programs, and the encouragement of cultural music in the community.
