I was extremely fortunate to take a break from behind the keys for a couple days to go back up to the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire to workshop two new pieces for three of their ensembles (including UWEC Bands and The Singing Statesmen). I’m continuously grateful for the support I’ve had from UW-Eau Claire as a very proud alumna. Stay tuned for the premieres of “Deus Noster Refugium” by the Singing Statesmen and “Gaudete Omnes” by the Symphonic Choir and Wind Symphony late this month!!

A sold-out industry night at Queer Eye: The Musical Parody is exactly how I envisioned opening weekend ending 💜 This cast is 🔥. Evan Mills is a flipping genius, and you still have sixteen chances to see this show. Bring your friends and we’ll see you at The Playground Theater!

You're gonna see a lot from me regarding Queer Eye: The Musical Parody over the next month and a half since we open on Thursday (!!!), but it always feels great to get a few commissions out the door before the madness ensues. Coming to a concert hall near you in the very near future:

–"Four Sacred Settings" for SSAA chorus & piano
(commissioned by the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire Women's Concert Chorale)

–"Deus Noster Refugium" for TTBB chorus, piano, and cello
(commissioned by the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire Singing Statesmen)

–"Distracted" for solo piano and cellular phones
(commissioned by Nick Phillips for his #45Miniatures project, more info at:

I'm so looking forward to these premieres, and we'll see you at Queer Eye!

Take note – why do women composers still take up less musical space?

Happy #InternationalWomensDay! How are you celebrating the women in your life today? How about the female writers? I encourage you to send your favorite piece written by a woman to someone who may have never heard it before, because while progress has been made, there is still serious work to be done in closing the gender gap.

Female composers have been around for over 1200 years. If you need some inspiration, here’s a playlist with some of the highlights from our history (P.S. it will take you days to get through):

Sound and Music set itself an ambitious target - gender parity by 2020. How’s it doing?

Meadow Brook Theatre

Exciting news!

Now that it's all confirmed, I'll be headed out to the Meadow Brook Theatre in Rochester, MI for seven weeks in May-June to music direct their final show of the season, "The IT Girl", described as "a Jazz Age Cinderella musical based on 'It,' the 1927 film that made Clara Bow a star."

More details to come, but check out their season - and I hope to see you in Michigan 🙂

Michigan's largest producing professional theatre.
