I would like to thank everyone for supporting me on this special day, whether you are here in person or watching at home.  Being able to share my love of singing with all of you is such a gift.

These past two years at NYU have been full of joy, friendship, and discovery.  I extend my sincerest gratitude to my incredible recital team;  It is truly an honor to work with all of you.  To my voice teacher, Harolyn Blackwell: I have learned so much about singing and about myself from you.  Thank you for sharing your kindness and knowledge these past two years.  Thank you to Elena Shaddow for your incredible talent and generosity.  It is hard to believe I've only been working with you for one semester, as I feel I have learned so much from you.  To my pianist, Noah Turner: thank you for your wonderful talent and collaboration.  It has been lovely working with you.  Thank you to Richie Cardile for lending your phenomenal voice to First Date / Last Night.  I love singing with you and being your friend.

Thank you so much to Dr. Ana Flavia Zuim, Barrie Gelles, Alexander Gemignani, Marcia Lesser, Stan Tucker, David Alpert, Jen Bender, Lee Summers, and all of my brilliant teachers at NYU.  I have learned so much about myself these past two years and it is thanks to all of your experience and knowledge.

To my wonderful friends and classmates at NYU: It has been such a joy getting to know and work with all of you.  It is a privilege watching you all perform, and I thank you for all of your support. 

Finally, to my family: thank you so very much for being here today.  It is always an honor to perform for you, and I am always floored by your support.  Roo, thank you for being my stylist/best friend and for always taking care of me.  Thank you to my parents for always being in the audience and, perhaps most importantly, for making me audition for the high school musical when I didn't make the tennis team.
