Greetings, all! Conductor/singer with diverse history seeks engagement in the musical realms, church or performance-oriented. I have worked as a church staff singer for Catholic, Epicopalian, and Methodist churches and have been a music director in the Lutheran (ELCA) church for many years, leading adult and youth vocal and handbell choirs, as well as instrumental ensembles. In that post I also composed and arranged music for all groups under my direction, as well as dealt with the usual administrative duties of the job such as scheduling/programming, library maintenance/purchasing, securing outside musicians for events, worship planning, and the like. I have sung for 17 seasons with the Houston Grand Opera Chorus and work on the video crew at Houston Symphony. High points of my education/career include a semi-finalist spot in the 2001 ACDA Student Conducting Awards and a 2006 award for the composition of a trio of motets.
I suffered a health breakdown last year that forced me to resign my jobs and am now that I am recovered I am trying to get back into the groove of things. Any leads on jobs in the Houston area would be greatly appreciated.
