  1. I am gratified to be chosen as a semi-finalist for my opera SAGA of a 21st Century Girl. Having written the book, written the libretto, composed and then orchestrated the music, it was a mammoth endeavor that culminated in three performances in Berkeley, California, at the Osher Studio, a venue of the Berkeley Repertory Theatre. For me personally, all that I compose comes from a profound desire to move my audience and reflect our moment in time in this society. Thank you.
