I have been hard at work all year preparing audition and competition material for various schools and competitions. Along with that, I have been working on my role in preparation for The Consul this summer.

It's been almost three years since I was last at NUOVA. I'm incredibly excited to be back at the program after the mainstage shows were cancelled in 2021 due to the pandemic. In my opinion, the intense schedule and work done at NUOVA is irreplaceable in improving yourself as a musician, but even more importantly in improving yourself as a colleague. It has been something I have missed dearly, and I can't wait to work with such incredible people again.
