Mission Statement

What is beautiful–infinitely beautiful?  The grotesque discords of Béla Bartók and the angelic cadences of William Byrd both raise that question.  What’s more, they each communicate a simple but profound truth: you exist.  Forget René Descartes’ “Cogito ergo sum.” You hear–therefore you are.  Take another step: if you exist, how does your life relate to the infinitely beautiful?

As a performer, I think of my music-making as an offering to those immersed in the music with me. It is an invitation to step into an awareness of the metaphysical. Thus, I desire to be vulnerable in my performances, striving to move, edify, and provoke thought as I pursue excellent performance.
