About Joy

  

I was born in Los Angeles, and I spent my youth singing and dancing, feeling the spirit of music moving through me.



After singing through my years at Beverly Hills High School in the Madrigal Singers under the leadership of Joel Pressman, I went on to graduate from Boston University, School of Music, receiving traditional Bel Canto pedagogy from Phyllis Hoffman.

I have performed the roles of Norina, Don Pasquale; Papagena, Magic Flute; the Witch, Into the Woods; Adele, Die Fledermaus;  Duchess of Plaza-Toro, The Gondoliers.

I became a candidate for Actor's Equity playing in the musical, Sweeney Todd with Musical Theater West, directed by Calvin Remsberg.  Other musicals include Titanic, Sweet Smell of Success, and the Rock Opera of Phantom of the Opera.

I have performed in many Southern California venues such as the Huntington Gardens, Sinai Temple, Hillcrest Country Club, and the Beverly Hills and Santa Monica Libraries.

I have studied with many wonderful teachers including Cathy Gabrielle Wallace, Diana Castle, Calvin Remsberg, Joan Zajac, and the renowned Opera singers Carlo Bergonzi and  Regine Crespin.

In 2013, I auditioned for Season 8 of America's Got Talent. I advanced to top 100 out of 75,000  who performed in Las Vegas.  For that audition I sang O Mio Babbino Caro while standing on my head. (see video) Same year, I was featured in the Victoria Principal Skincare Infomercial.

While I continue to teach Yoga to both Adults and Kids, I am deeply grateful for each opportunity that allows me to challenge myself and share my love singing.
