I began singing solos at 4 years old with Cherub Choir in my hometown church. I longed to be Mary in the holiday pageants, but was always cast as the singing Angel! Much later, I performed with the Edgewater Eight at Edgewater Dinner Theater in Minneapolis, in a world-premiere performance piece at Jungle Theater in Minneapolis, and at the Aspen Music Festival in Colorado and the National Orchestra in Mexico City, Mexico with the Minnesota Chorale. My church singing career ended with my 40th anniversary as professional soprano soloist/Cantor at St. James Episcopal Church in Minneapolis. How fortunate, and grateful, I am to perform now with the amazing Alive & Kickin ensemble!
