The Bwak Choir
During the first The Materia Collective I arranged “Waltz de Chocobo” for a fictional group of puppet chickens. We called them “The Bwak Choir” and soon demand grew for more! We made a teaser music video, then a real full music video, followed by more video game music arrangements. The Bwak Choir has a mind of its own now, and therefore they have a website, a Twitter, and a Facebook presence:)
Don Giovanni the Bram Stoker Dracula Edition
Mozart’s classic opera Don Giovanni is coming to Undercroft Opera, but with a vampire twist! I worked hard for two months with Liz Rishel, Michael Greenstein, Gwendolyn R. Schmidt and Mary Beth Sederburg crafting a new libretto based on the story and characters from Bram Stoker’s Dracula! In addition to helping write the show, I am also covering the role of “Zerlina” (aka. “Lucy” from the book) and playing one of the “Three Vampire Brides”. WORLD PREMIERE of our new libretto will be May 26th-29th at the Antonian Theatre in Pittsburgh, PA.
