Opera Singer Chooses Different Path - Interview with David L'Hommedieu WaMa Art Asylum

    • Arts

David L’Hommedieu was trained as an opera singer, attending The American Boychoir School in Princeton, NJ, which many consider the pre-eminent professional boychoir school in the United States. As a member of the choir, David regularly performed at the Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. As an adult, David continued performing with Opera Companies in major venues in the United States and Europe.

But after receiving a Masters in Music and Voice Performance, David left the touring life of Professional Opera in order to become the Director of Worship and the Arts at Pine Street Church in historic downtown Boulder, CO. I wanted to explore the "Why" of such a decision, as well as his strong belief that the arts, and in particular music, is essential to a vital spiritual life. 

I also explore David’s most recent project as the co-creator, along with the Pastor of Pine Street Church, Andrew Dougherty, of the Hyphenated Life Podcast, which will officially launch in October of this year.
