I am currently a member of the Louisville Chamber Choir, a premium choral ensemble designed to present exceptional musical experiences that nurture community appreciation of choral singing through quality performances, recordings, and collaborations. The ensemble also holds annual collaborations with the Louisville Orchestra for performances of Handel's Messiah as well as large choral orchestral works combined with the University of Louisville Collegiate Chorale and selected members from the community and high school students from around the city. I am also singing at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Louisville as one of the cantors and Bass section leader, occasionally playing the clarinet when needed. Previously, I have worked at St. Aloysius Catholic Church in Pewee Valley, KY as a volunteer cantor, and St. Luke Korean Catholic Church in Birmingham, AL as a volunteer music director.
While studying at the University of Louisville, I had the privilege to be part of the Cardinal Singers for six years and attended countless festivals and competitions. The ensemble performed at numerous conventions of the American Choral Directors Association, performing at the 2017 National Convention and 2016 Southern Division Convention, also performing at the National Collegiate Choral Organization in 2015 while I was in the group. Cardinal Singers was also invited to perform at the Carnegie Hall in 2017. I also traveled annually with the group to perform in festivals and international competitions around the world including Taiwan, Singapore, Korea, China, Germany, Poland, Austria, Croatia, and Slovenia and won numerous awards, the most recent being the grand prize at the International Choir Competition Zadar Croatia. I was also involved with the Collegiate Chorale that regularly collaborates with the Louisville Orchestra, performing works including the Beethoven's 9th symphony, Mahler's 2nd symphony, Bernstein's Mass and Chichester Psalms, Mozart's Requiem, and Orff's Carmina Burana. I have also served as Tenor section leader for three years in the Collegiate Chorale.
