About Me

I was a long time resident of New Orleans, but now live in New Jersey, close to grandchildren.  My husband and I return to New Orleans every year for about a month.  I am a singer and sang with the Rayne Memorial Methodist Choir for many years which is where I met Ebonee who introduced me to Opera Creole.

About Me

Avid fan of Opera for many years due to an early exposure from my oldest brother, Robert Vaucresson, Jr., who decided at an early age that he wanted to be an opera singer.  Spent many days listening to my brother rehearse for many workshops and performances.  He influenced my love of singing and opera and is the main impetus for why I continue to this day.  Robert died at an early age (33), but left and indelible print on the lives of many people in our family who now appreciate the musical genre.  I continue to sing in honor of his legacy and hope to influence and educate as many people as I can as to opera's role in New Orleans Creole culture.
