An Die Music [head shot]
the Beaner Bio
Originally a native of Rockville, MD, I left for New York City after graduating the East Carolina School of Music to accept a scholarship in the studio of Yolanda Apre'. Subsequent studies included voice lessons with Sam Sarkarian and coaching with Janet Bookspan of the New York City and Metropolitan Opera companies respectively. My professional singing credits include principal roles in productions by the American/Israeli Opera Company, The Henry Street Theatre, The Russo-American Opera Company, The NYC Gilbert and Sullivan Players, and the Center for Contemporary Opera. My favorite role was that of Don Alfonso in a production of Cosi Fan Tutti.

After 8 years in NYC, I was confronted with the reality of Matthew 5:29-30. As a result, I left my operatic ambition in NYC and moved back to Rockville where I subsequently met and married my wife Karen. Since that time, I have has concentrated on sacred works, including solos in productions of Let All Heaven Rejoice, concert works such as the 7 Last Words of Christ and Handel's Messiah, and solo recitals and performances at various churches. Currently, I am working on a computerized accompaniment for Dvorak's 10 Biblical Songs for an upcoming tape project.

Egad, I've been performing for quite some time. Actually, since age six. Now that I've finished graduate school, I will begin to list singing oppurtunities as they arise. Also, if you have an _AUDITION_ or _COMPETITION_ you'd like to advertise, do it here. At some point, I will also list .wav files that provide you a sample of my singing wares.
