April Update

This month is an exciting one for me. As some of you may know, I am currently singing in Cal State Long Beach’s advanced vocal jazz ensemble Pacific Standard Time under the direction of Christine Guter. You may also know that I began my jazzy journey in the group Singcopation from Mt. SAC. My experience in vocal jazz has taken me places I never would have dreamed and has led me to my amazing and ever-growing family of incredible jazz musicians with whom I get to make magic with on many band stands.
A huge part of this journey has been participating in the Next Generation Jazz Festival Competition as part of Singcopation. This lead to the invitation to perform at the Monterey Jazz Festival in 2012. It was such an inspiring and unforgettable experience and I am so excited to share that I will be returning to the competition with Pacific Standard Time! Our performance is Sunday so keep us in your hearts as we endeavor to share our love for vocal jazz with hundreds of music students and faculty from all over the country!

April showers bring may flowers…or at least good music!
