I'm happy to announce that I've been selected as a quarterfinalist in the 2017 American Traditions Competition!
I'll travel to Savannah, Georgia in February, where the quarterfinalists will sing three songs in three genres chosen from a provided list. All selections must be by American composers and songwriters. If we move on to the next two rounds, we sing three new songs in each for a total of nine different songs in nine different genres throughout the competition. We submitted our set lists with our application, so our songs are set! Time to start collaborating with pianists!
A special thanks to photographer Josh Saul for doing some AMAZING headshots in a big rush to send in for the competition's marketing. Thanks to Jessica Kufel for agreeing to do makeup that morning with less than 24 hours notice, and to Nikki Fields at Le Colour Bar for her always-fabulous cut and color work.
