I began designing costumes and make up for Nicholas Isherwood, at The School of Music and Dance at The University of Oregon in the Winter of 2008. The opera program presented a new production every Spring, offering a variety of storytelling opportunities. The students were given the immeasurable experience of reaching out musically to the community by singing to the homeless, in retirement homes and even one very special visit to the State Penitentiary. I traveled with them.
