I’m back in rehearsal for these two action-packed shows! Excited to once again be working with the wonderfully talented singer and actress Susannah Mars as we reprise “Oh, Those Gershwin Boys” at Cordiner Hall on the Whitman College Campus in Walla Walla, WA. And too, with acclaimed actor/singer and historian Ron Spivak performing our 2014 show, “It’s Better With a Baritone” in addition to the Best Loved Solos & Duets – Broadway and The Great American Songbook in and around Portland, OR.

Tickets are available for all shows outlined here and you are always welcome to contact me if you have questions. I look forward to seeing you there!
