Hello friends –
Thank you for taking the time to read my annual recap. I hope the New Year is treating you well, wherever you may be.
2015 was a centennial year for three important figures in American music – Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, and Billy Strayhorn. My children and I enjoyed an afternoon at the New York Public Library of the Performing Arts exhibit on Frank Sinatra. I have included some pictures below. My favorite was the touch screen virtual “jukebox.”
2015 was a great year for me to get my voice back in shape and to get back into the business of singing. I had another wonderful experience at the Make Music NY gig sponsored by Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer. The weather was extremely hot, but we were a diehard group of performers and audience members!! I also had a fun opportunity to sing at a new Danny Meyer venue called Porchlight Bar. I worked with pianist Misha Piatigorsky for the first time and we breezed our way through a set list from Hoagy Carmichael to James Brown.
I look for 2016 to bring more of the above!! If you are in the metropolitan NYC area or know someone who lives here who is looking for music for their venue or event, please have them contact me at 646-583-1370. I’m always pursuing new opportunities and leads. I also promise to post more photos and videos (and maybe launch a new mobile site) in 2016.
