What is your story as a singer? I have been singing for as long as I can remember! I was involved in church choirs since elementary school, and sang in a madrigal group during high school.  I then joined Bucknell University's Rooke Chapel Choir.  After graduating, I auditioned with CCS and have been a member ever since. 

Favorite onstage experience: I've been very fortunate to sing in some incredible spaces and venues, as my college choir toured internationally every other year.  Christmas performances have always been my favorite, though.  Bucknell is known for its candlelight services, and it was tradition to perform Once in Royal David's City and Stille Nacht every year. When I joined CCS last Fall, we happened to sing both pieces — which definitely made me feel right at home!
