Out of the mouths of babes!


(5/4/2010) Yesterday I had a blast singing in an opera outreach program for kids at a center in S. St. Pete.  Gosh, we had such a good time.  My colleague Jean Collins, soprano, was amazing, singing some great musical theater pieces as well as "Quando m'en vo" from La Bohème.  I had a blast making kids laugh with my high staccato passages in the Doll Song.  Such fun to sing the Queen again as well as a piece called "The sun whose rays are all ablaze" from Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Mikado."


At the end of the performance, our hosts passed a microphone to several kids in the audience to get some feedback about the performance.  They said, "It was beautiful!"  "I didn't used to like opera, but now I do." (YES!) "They were really loud!" (Hahaha!) "They sing really good and are talented."  And my personal favorite:  "It was hot!!"


Out of the mouths of babes!  That was hilarious!  So much fun.
