On November 6 2021 I had the pleasure of singing a full evening concert of opera with Flos Campi Choir and Orchestra.
This concert was long awaited… it was planned for the summer of 2020! And then 2021! And we decided we did not want to wait ANOTHER year so we came up with a wonderful operatic program. Mascagni, Bellini, Dvorak, Puccini were the stars of the evening. The musicians and audience came together to enjoy the beautiful melodies and emotions. I introduced the pieces to give context to the arias, and sang Madama Butterfly, Norma, Rusalka, Lauretta and Santuzza. What a joy!!!
A thank you from the chairwoman read as follows:
Je zong werkelijk de sterren van de hemel en nam ons finaal mee in jouw muzikale verbeelding van de muziek.
Maar ook jouw gesproken uitleg verhoogde de feestvreugde aanmerkelijk.
You truly sang out of this world and guided us decisively through your musical imagination of the music. But your spoken comments also heightened the festivity considerably.
