Get Your Voice—and Words—Out There

Getting your voice out there. You may not know I’m a voice actor. For a word lover like me it’s the best job ever! I have a home studio that looks like a giant Tardis in its PJs. In September, I visited North Dakota for Anime Fargo. I didn’t see any desperate criminals (that I know of), just […]

Japanese Garden Tour

Japanese Garden Tour

In artful landscapes we lose ourselves in a path woven around a pond and a harmonious stone arrangement; we delight in the variegated colors of graceful koi and the bright hues of blossoming plums; and we are calmed by a stream’s gentle murmur and the dappled greens of moss. —Dr. Kendall Brown, Quiet Beauty: Japanese […]

Master Chorale on the Prowl

Master Chorale on the Prowl

It is no accident that composing plays as nearly a leading a role in Pasadena Master Chorale’s mission as singing. For starters, founder (and Altadena resident) Jeffrey Bernstein is a composer who has written works that have been performed nationwide and throughout Europe, Japan and Australia. Then, in 2014, PMC commissioned local composers Matthew Brown […]
