24 years old (or young...)
Living in Austin, TX but originally from Honolulu, HI
Happily married to an amazing pianist and 18th century counterpoint specialist.
Musician by trade, mid-way through a BM in music composition.
Focusing on choral music and chamber instrumental music.
Current composition projects:
Makaliʻi for mixed chamber septet (fl, eng hn, cl, bsn, vln, vla, vlc) ~14'-16'
Variations on a theme from Schumann, with the theme from Piano Quartet in Eb major Op. 47, mvt. 3 Andante Cantabile, for solo piano
Huuuuge music theory nerd.
Musicology and ethnomusicology interests in sacred choral music and Hawaiian choral music
Light lyric/light coloratura soprano
Focusing on artsong and oratorio literature.
Big projects include arias from Mendelssohn's Elijah and Bach's St. Matthew's Passion, as well as Schubert's Winterreise.
My non-musical life includes an interest in feminism and social justice and an amateur penchant for essay and blog writing. I am also an amateur copy-editor and style editor (so let me know if you need my assistance there!) and like to geek out about grammar. I also have a budding interest in linguistics, although I haven't studied much formally. I particularly like the study of phonetics, what with being a singer and all.
Anyway, I hope to get to know more people and have a great time here - it really does bring back memories! Leave a comment if you stop by!
