She was a long time performer at Symphony Space’s Bloomsday on Broadway before becoming the program?s Music Director. Lisa’s curates a concert series at the Cornelia Street Cafe in the West Village. She combined her love of improv and opera with Frank Spitznagel to create the one-woman improvised opera, La Donna Improvvisata, which debuted at the Magnet as part of the 2013 New York Musical Improv Festival and gone on to perform around the country (Del Close Marathon, iO Chicago, NCCAF).
