Here is a little 2-minute trailer highlighting a little bit of my solo work in Haydn's Missa in Angustiis in D-minor (the Lord Nelson Mass). It turned out to be a very hot June day in San Mateo and I chose a long-sleeved velvet dress - oops! Who knew singing Haydn would be like doing Bikram yoga? Choir/Orchestra: Viva La Musica. Conductor: Shulamit Hoffmann. Soloists: Teressa Foss (S), Solmaaz Adeli (M), Corey Head (T), Jeffrey Fields (B). 2016 All rights reserved.
I realized that almost all my favorite orchestral music comes from the movies, and I blame it all on listening to John Williams' soundtrack for "Star Wars" obsessively when I was a kid. Some performers fantasize about being directors; others about being producers or artistic directors; I'd rather wield a baton.
