Annual Student Holiday Recital

DSCF0361

Every year I put together a student recital. It is a great chance for my students to get up and perform in front of their piers and family. Taking private lessons allows the student to excel and grow as a musician but there is a time when practice must give way to performance. I am happy to announce that my students did a wonderful job. With ages ranging from 5 years to 18 years the audience could see how each student has progressed and grown. It was a wonderful way to end the year and I feel very lucky to have such devoted students of music. 

Wagner Christmas Show

Last Night I performed at the Annual Wagner Ensemble Christmas show in Los Angeles. This year the group sang a variety of Holiday Folks song from Europe as well as Christmas Classics arranged by Richard Wagner. The Christmas season is a time of giving and this concert was a great way for us to give back to our supporters and spread the Christmas spirit. We performed at a beautiful church in Westwood and had a wonderful audience with friends, fans and family.

Japan tour with Roger Wagner Chorale, 2011

L1060360

        This November I was selected to be apart of an amazing group of performers that got to travel on a singing tour in Japan. The Wagner Ensemble has traveled to Japan many times over its long distinguished history. The current tour visited five cities in two weeks with five performances in the cities of Tokyo, Nagoya, Kagoshima, and Osaka. We sang a variety of songs ranging from Americana to Classical to Japanese folk songs. I was a soloist in the Japanese song Chi Chi Pa Pa that was a big hit with the Japanese people. It was my first time visiting Japan and I must admit I was overwhelmed at the beauty and culture of the country. I only had a few days in each city that limited my experience but I look forward to returning someday to see more. My favorite experience was visiting Kyoto on a day trip. The beautiful fall colors and history was amazing. I am very thankful for this experience and the wonderful people that made this tour possible.
