It has been a wonderful and difficult year, and I am so grateful to all of my collaborators, all of my fans, and all of my family for getting me through 2012. Thanks to all the students and teachers and incredible performers and musicians I worked with this year in Salt Lake City, UT; Portland, OR; Winter Park, FL; Toronto, ON; Fort Worth, TX; Woodland, CA; Santa Monica, CA; Birmingham, AL; Southampton, NY; Philadelphia, PA; Albany, NY; Elon, NC; Pasadena, CA: Sonoma, CA; Buffalo, NY; East Greenwich, RI; Westport, CT; Los Angeles, CA; Spokane, WA; Interlochen, MI; Olathe, KS; Houston, TX; Phoenix, AZ; and Stockholm, Sweden; and thank you to all the folks who were part of my concerts at the Broad Stage in L.A. with Anika Noni Rose; Birdland with Heidi Blickenstaff, Jenn Damiano and Destan Owens; The Apollo Shaftesbury with Lara Pulver, Stuart Matthew Price, Ramin Karimloo and all the NYMT singers; and 54 Below with Shoshana Bean; all the folks who took part in workshops and readings of Honeymoon In Vegas, The Bridges of Madison County, Prince of Broadway and The Alcestiad; and unbelievable gratitude to everyone involved in 13 at NYMT on the West End, the absolute highlight of my year, if not my entire career. 2013 promises to be even more crazy, in many different ways, and I am so looking forward to going on the journey with all of you.
