Research and Teaching Interests
I am currently in the early stages of a project focusing in Aquitanian versus (a type of Latin song from the 11th-12th centuries), examining both their cultural ramifications and their performance practices through the idea of corporeality and the singing body. The project is informed by my experience as a singer of medieval repertoires as well as portative organ performer. Key to the project is also a commitment to present these little-known repertoires to contemporary audiences, through recitals and singing workshops.
