Her work comprises diverse leading opera and oratorio roles for various companies around the US and abroad, and has garnered rave reviews, some of which appear at the end of this bio. A versatile singer, Leslie recently joined forces with jazz pianist Sean Rogers to form the duo PinkFusion which had their debut performance right before Covid struck.
