recording the third quince album

me and quince

Last week I did a thing (or more like the Quince Contemporary Vocal Ensemble did a thing): I/they recorded Prisoner of Conscience.

(Goodness, I think I was wearing the same shirt as Liz Lemon.)

Here are some photos. Enjoy!

Thanks Liz!

For the record, this is Carrie’s jar of peanut butter.

They made me do it! They made me do it! (Yes, I have a cameo on this album.)

I am a naaaaaaaasty woman


Here is a quick note to say that I am beyond proud and honored to count so many women as my friends and colleagues. Unfortunately I did not march (it was audition weekend, but then I ended up catching a cold that left me bedridden), but man, what a day.

My composer friend Marie Incontrera probably expressed my sentiment best:


I am not marching today. I am not protesting today. My entire existence, for the next four years, is resistance. My art, my survival.

Amen sister.

(More on this later, once I’ve finished my next piece.)
