This is for the young singer who asked me about my experience at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ. It was one of the hardest and best times of my life! Anyone could get in but it was extremely hard to STAY in because the level of competition and musical excellence were very high. I worked hard to be as good as I could be in the midst of trying to grow up and have a social life! I was so lucky to have wonderful teachers who encouraged me as much as possible and thankfully I had the presence of mind to put my nose to the grindstone and study while I was there! The atmosphere at Westminster makes one want to sing and learn. It's a fantastic university town and a small campus so you won't feel lost. The main thing to remember is that you're going there to learn as much as you can and so when you're in that sort of place, you don't want to squander the time you have. You want to use it and enjoy every minute of it. I'm in frequent contact with the current dean and some of the teachers so I can attest to the fact that these days, it's even better! Daniel Beckwith just joined the faculty and that is a HUGE plus! He's a scholar in so many areas and a real task master! You cannot go to that school and not learn! I am so proud to be a graduate from Westminster Choir College! All the best to you!!

My husband and I heard your Romeo and Juliet recording (Bellini) for the first time this afternoon as it was played on KFUO in St. Louis. Fortunately, I recorded it using RadioShark. We are replaying it now as we prepare dinner together and are thrilled with your singing. I was motivated to look for your Website, a schedule of where you will be singing over the next several months and a list of your other recordings. Brava! Gayle Jackson

Hi Jenny, So happy for your success. I don't think any of us in high school expected anything less. You were always terrific. I will try to get some of the old group together to come to see you in Athens GA. Would love to reconnect. How is your family? Your parents look well! Take care

I spoke to you at the Chicago NATS master class, got your email address then, but it might be old now. Would you please send me a note?
