I am a vocalist & pianist, specializing in music theatre and jazz standards, but am classically trained. I have several years experience in accompanying vocalists (both theatre and opera), choral groups, and music theatre organizations. I sing in cabaret groups and have my own cabaret organization, Main Street Cabaret. I also teach private voice.

What to Expect
I am prepared to cater to your needs, whether it be classical, jazz standards or showtunes. I will offer professional entertainment that you can enjoy!
I have a master's degree in music education, along with several years training in voice and piano. I have accompanied opera and theatre vocalists, musicals, and choral concerts. After several years of doing cabaret shows at various venues, I started an organization called Main Street Cabaret (a branch of Main Street Opera), and we will be offering various cabaret shows in the Chicago area. I am available as a solo vocalist, solo pianist, piano accompanist, singer/pianist, or with Main Street Cabaret. Needless to say, I have a lot of varieties to offer!
I also offer vocal coaching for singers.

My set list will vary according to the audience. I have a wide variety of music to choose from and can play a variety or offer a theme. For instance, my cabaret group is doing a run of "Broadway Babies" (songs from top leading ladies of the stage), and I am doing a solo Rodgers & Hart/Hammerstein show this fall.
