Upcoming Project:


I am excited to be working on a new musical with composer Gary Gimmestad. Gary and I met several years ago in the Minneapolis company of “Forever Plaid.” Soon he was writing vocal arrangements for a vocal group I produced and from there we continued to work together on various projects. Gary music directed my first CD, “I’m Wishing” and a couple years ago we co-wrote some songs for Three Cat Productions “Hang Your Hat at Mr. Kelly’s.” This spring, a new musical, “Park Bench” will be produced by Three Cat. This has a been a long time goal for Gary and I. Gary will be composing the musical score and writing lyrics and I will be providing the script.

I’ll keep you posted as the process continues.
