Thank you to Owen Zacharias for his CSS help, and to the Computing Services department at the Eastman School of Music for teaching me lots during my four years working there.
This redesign went live in Summer 2008, and utilised servier-side includes until August 2009 when I converted everything to .php and added the contact form.
All of the pages in this site have been validated XHTML 1.0 Transitional using w3.org.
The music along the right hand side of this and other pages and in the résumé headers are parts of the Kyrie from the Missa Virgo parens Christi by Jacques Barbireau (ca.1420-1491). This manuscript is one of three in the Sistina collection probably copied in Brussels or Mechlin (Malines) at the court of Margaret of Austria, regent of the Netherlands, and sent to Rome as a gift for Pope Leo X (1513-21).
The dress I am wearing on the home page (also the default picture at right) was made for me to wear in the third act of La rondine. However, it wasn’t finished until the opening night, so in this picture, the final dress rehearsal, I am pinned into it.
The same dress was resurrected for me to play Rosalinda in Die Fledermaus a year later. (Under photos, see Various.)
A plug for wigs: the picture above the “about” button is from The Pirates of Penzance. It took three people 45 minutes and lots of a hair product called “göt 2b glued” to get my hair to stay like that for just the first act. It took me three days after every show to get all of the stuff out of my hair! But Nellie Olsen (from The Little House on the Prarie) would have been proud.
I am a member of the Civil War Heritage Foundation, a group that does living history, teaching the public about the Civil War and the people who lived through it. I portray Clara Louise Kellogg, the first American Prima Donna. The picture above “Reviews” and in the Various section of Photos are from events with that group.
