Laureate of the Jardin des Voix, 6th edition (2013)
"Le Jardin des Voix was a transformative experience for me, not only as an opportunity to be introduced to audiences across Europe and the US with the legendary Les Arts Florissants, but more importantly it allowed me to tap into an amazing fount of knowledge. Having one on one time working with Paul Agnew, Sophie Daneman, and William Christie themselves was extremely valuable in solidifying my understanding of French music from the 17th and 18th centuries. However, they also imparted an important philosophy on how to approach performing repertoires that span all centuries with great curiosity, seriousness, and joy—and I carry this with me wherever I go."
