Dawson 3:16 

June 9th @ 6:00-6:30pm (FraenkelLAB, SF) at 1632 Market Street

Dawson 3:16 is an immersive participatory group meditation in the style of a Taizè service, a simple service of few words, sung prayer, and silence, originating in the monastic community of Taizè, France. Monks in footed pajamas will lead participants in re-centering themselves with the aid of scriptures from television episodes and theme songs sung in the round.

This performance illuminates Chris Kallmyer's current installation "Listening is a Luxury".

The Consul with Berkeley Chamber Opera

July 14th @ 7pm //  July 16th @2pm (Berkeley Hillside Club)

With a subject as relevant today as it was in 1950, Gian Carlo Menotti brings to life the horror of a family fleeing political persecution in their home country. Faced with an endless and inhumane vetting process for visas, they endure the agony of an uncertain future. The opera won a pulitzer prize for music and ran on Broadway for nearly 8 months in 1950. In this production, I'll sing the role of Anna Gomez, a Holocaust survivor.
