What’s your sign?
Most underrated song that, in your opinion, should be a classic?

Biggest compliment you’ve ever gotten from a fan?
Following this season’s Choral Society Christmas concert, a patron said, “This felt like the most normal thing we’ve done in two years—attending a beautiful Choral Society concert surrounded by our friends for a wonderful evening.”
Favorite piece to perform?
“The Faure Requiem”—a slice of heaven.
What do you sing in the shower?
Vocal exercises to warm-up. The “Libera me” from the “Faure Requiem” is a great shower piece!

At what venue do you most like to perform?
We are fortunate that we have two venues large enough for us to perform in here on HHI: First Presbyterian Church and Holy Family Catholic Church.
