I’m so excited to be dropping like the temps into my favorite time of year. These are the months where the colors get brighter, along with my spirit and zest for life, along with my love for the outdoors.

As I write this, I’m in the beautiful shiny city of Chicago, rehearsing for my debut with the Lyric Opera of Chicago in the role of Marie in Donizetti’s comedy La fille du régiment, in Laurent Pelly’s iconic production. Starring alongside me is Larry Brownlee as Tonio, Alessandro Corbelli as Sulpice, and conducting us is the wonderful Maestro Speranza Scappucci, also making her debut! We open on Nov 4 and have 7 performances, so come and see us!

On Nov 7th for me is a half-recital concert in Clarksville, TN, at the Austin Peay State University, where I will also lead a masterclass on Nov 6th.

On December 1st, I’ll be back in my hometown of New Orleans to sing a concert with three other young singers at the Mahalia Jackson Theatre. This evening of opera arias and ensembles highlights the incredible talent that the Met’s Laffont Competition has featured over the years. Meastro Joseph Colaneri leads us.

Finally on Dec. 10th, Larry Brownlee and I reunite in Dresden for a concert performance of Bellini’s I Puritani. We are so excited also to be recording the complete opera for future release on audio CD.


Gratitude is always the word, but this year I’m wrapped up in it over and over. 2023 has been very big for me, and it’s still going!

I’m embracing the variety of places that I’ve had the privilege to sing in, and the new environments that consistently provide inspiration to my work and my being. I’m never in the same place twice, it seems, and for that I’m grateful. I’m not the same person I was the last time I visited any location, and coming back is always a renewal and a fresh start. And new places, well, they leave their mark on my memory too, and with that, another thing to be grateful for.

Each time I see a familiar face backstage, or at a performance, I’m reminded that we meet each other where music brings us, and that can be on a continent across the sea, or on the street where I once lived. Music makes the world vast, infinite, and it also reaches our own human hearts. How else can we be so intertwined?

It’s incredible, this art’s web, that is ever spinning its threads of connection.
