I perform regularly in southwestern Ontario and Michigan as an opera, oratorio and concert soloist, as well as a recitalist. Most recently, I have been a featured soloist with the Windsor Symphony Orchestra, the Renaissance Singers, the Spiritus Ensemble, the Georgetown Choral Society, the Mennonite Mass Choir, Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestra, the International Symphony Orchestra, the Stratford Summer Music Festival, the Scaramella ensemble, the Canadian Chamber Ensemble, the Bach-Elgar Choir and the Guelph Chamber Choir.
I have served as a church musician, choral scholar and church music director for over 15 years, and I have served as an adjudicator and workshop facilitator for amateur musicians.
As an educator/lecturer, I have taught at Eastwood Collegiate Institute, Rockway Mennonite Collegiate, Heritage College and Seminary (Cambridge) and the Kanata Centre for Worship and Global Song at Martin Luther Univeristy College. As a choral conductor, I have served the Menno Youth singers, the Rockway Mennonite Collegiate Senior choir and the Rockway Concert Combo.
The thing I enjoy most about teaching at Laurier is having the opportunity to work with such creative and vibrant musicians on a daily basis. The passion, artistry and sensitivity from our students are infectious within the community and are what resonate the value of our various programming beyond the faculty's walls.
