February – Time to Travel

February 16, 2009

Sixth Wave sang in Pasadena, CA and Flagstaff, AZ recently – here are a couple of photos:

Performances coming up:

On February 20, Beethoven’s Wig performs in Thousand Oaks. I am the resident Diva! Click here for details! Shows are at 9:30am, 11am, and 6:30pm and also feature tenor Jonathan Mack as well as the creator, Richard Perlmutter.

On March 20, Sixth Wave performs in Edmonton, Canada for ChoralFest.

Our latest CD, “Happy Madness”, is available either through CDBaby, which also has digital downloads, our website, and soon to be on iTunes with the first two CDs.

Further into the future:
April 18 Beethoven’s Wig inTexas
April 23 Sixth Wave in Greeley, Colorado
Memorial Day weekend in Nashville, TN for the release of my geocaching book at a big, big geocaching event, Geowoodstock
June 14 Beethoven’s Wig in Tulsa, Oklahoma

Meanwhile, you can hear me on upcoming commercials for Lexus and Cocoa Puffs, the latter being a cartoon opera, and on the score of “Race to Witch Mountain.” I’m on this season of “10 Items or Less”, currently airing on TBS. Each season is funnier than the last, and my off-camera ooh-ahhs are the signature Greek chorus. I got to sing a parody of the song “Car Wash” for one episode – way too much fun!

October brings hot weather and hot gigs

October 27, 2008

Los Angeles is having a typical fall: warm and sunny! Well… OK, that’s typical weather here most of the time. Ha!

Sixth Wave has finished our new CD, Happy Madness, and our release party is Nov. 3 in Hollywood:

In other news:
You can hear me on an upcoming episode of “Cold Case” singing the Habanera from Carmen. I’m the off-camera voice of the on-camera actress.

I also got to sing on the score for the upcoming Star Trek movie, just choir this time, and we all sang the the original theme together. Other than that, I know nothing at all about the film, but I’m really excited to see it.

Speaking of Star Trek, I made a couple of surprise appearances (surprises to me too!) with Clay Jenkinson at his performances in Seattle. From his sublime portrayals of Oppenheimer and T. Roosevelt, we went to the ridiculous, when he asked me to sing the original theme from Star Trek, inspired by the gift of a Captain Kirk shirt from a mutual friend.

Clay’s personal recreations of historic characters are outstanding, and his observations of current events are astute and refreshing. I recommend a listen to his “Thomas Jefferson Hour”. More information on him can be found at his website .

OH – here’s my high note:
