I recently had the opportunity to photograph a workshop at the Curtis Institute of Music for the upcoming opera "Cold Mountain" by Jennifer Higdon. Premiering at Santa Fe Opera in 2015, the production is a co-commission with Opera Philadelphia. I'm grateful to have been able to capture a beginning stage in this incredible new work!
Last month under the Apollo Theater Education department, I had the opportunity to capture a Family Showtime performance featuring excerpts from James Brown: Get On The Good Foot – A Celebration in Dance. Presented by the Apollo Theater, this vivacious and soulful production made me want to abandon my Saturday night plans and come back to enjoy the evening performance without a camera in front of my face!
