Thank you for visiting my page.
Here, I would like to share with you what I have done, what I am doing, what I am about to do, and what I like to do as a performer.
I was born and raised in the Philippines. I moved to the US to study Vocal Performance at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. Now, I live in Philadelphia, pursuing my dream to make a living as a singer.
So far, I have been blessed to have an active performing career. As an opera singer, I have performed for various companies including Dell'arte Opera Ensemble, St. Petersburg Opera, Garden State Opera, Opera Philadelphia, Alter Ego Opera Company, Opera Libera, Opera MODO, Concert Operetta Theater, Poor Richard's Opera, Center City Opera Theater, Opera New Jersey, and Opera in the Ozarks. I have enjoyed playing a wide variety of characters. My favorites include Rinuccio in Gianni Schicchi, Nemorino in L'elisir d'amore, Ferrando in Così fan tutte, Pedrillo in Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Mayor Upfold in Albert Herring, Gherardo in Gianni Schicchi, and Guillot de Morfortaine in Manon. I have also been fortunate to premiere a number of roles in new operas.
As a concert soloist, I have been featured in a number of large choral works and have performed with orchestras including the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, Symphony in C, and the Chestnut Hill Choral Festival Orchestra. Most recently I sang as soloist for the Philadelphia Orchestra in Lena Frank's Pachamama Meets an Ode.
As a professional chorister, I have also been privIleged to sing with excellent vocal ensembles including the Philadelphia Symphonic Choir (the official chorus of the Philadelphia Orchestra), Philadelphia Singers, Vox Ama Deus, Singing City, the Archdiocesan Choir of Philadelphia, the choir of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Chestnut Hill, Singing City, Mendelssohn Club, among many others.
I am also active in the podcast sphere as the producer and content manager of Craft Works Music, a unique podcast with its own in-house vocal ensemble. (Available on iTunes and other podcast repositories)
When I am not rehearsing or performing, I teach a private roster of voice and piano students in the greater Philadelphia area.
Life as a classical musician is truly exciting and I am very much honored to share my experience with you.
