We’ve been loving the spring weather here- how about you?
This week’s Good Pickins’ is going to be short and sweet, because it’s “death by concert” season for our family. Last night we played for a local pregnancy center’s fundraiser event, today is a (non-musical) fundraiser for my husband’s students, tomorrow is a classical concert with opera selections, and Monday morning is a local college ceremony in which I am singing a duet.
That being said, I must focus on practicing and sleeping- not typing. 🙂
So guess what you get to check out today? Videos of the pieces I’m going to sing tomorrow night! First, I’m playing Cherubino (a young boy played by a woman) in Le Nozze Di Figaro, an opera by Mozart. I’m singing the aria Voi che sapete, in which Cherubino asks the women in his company to examine his heart and tell him whether or not he’s really in love:
Next, I’m singing Alice’s small part in a famous sextet from the opera Lucia di Lammermoor, written by Donizetti:
That’s it for now, folks. Have a sing-songy Saturday!
