An Invitation to …..
I am so pleased to announce that I will be recording this summer a lovely group of arias and songs for a new release on ITUNES, due for Oct.10, Verdi’s Birthday.
Growing up I was always fascinated with Rosa Ponselle. She at about my same age, made a series of recordings in her own home in Baltimore, MD of fond remembrance for me, The Villa Pace.
She sang everything and anything in her amazing voice and she accompanied herself on piano for much of it. Enough music for two albums.
I will have piano, but also several other arrangements and instruments, and it will include things that I love to sing, arias from operas I have not yet sung.
And it won’t be in my home, but in a theater.
Some surprises to be sure! If it can be worked out there will also be bonus discs, some video, and a special edition “Vinyl” album limited issue.
This is such fun!!! But you know, I have always felt so emotionally raw for recordings. It last long after we are dust. So very important to give your best.
So stay tuned, and I hope to leave a document for those who love my singing of how I sounded circa 2013.
So little recording is done these days, and I have this lovely opportunity to share with all my friends and family and fans a “little music from the heart”
In honor of Verdi I am earmarking a percentage be given to Verdi’s Casa Di Riposo in Milano. The man built a home for retired opera singers so they could live out their days
in dignity. How much I love him.
More info to come and several other lovely announcements…..
