It's been awhile since I've done the classical show, so it feels good to be back! Had Dead White Guys' founder, Peter Grella, here for this show, and I had a lot of fun chatting with him! 

I meant to have this update up waaaay sooner, but c'est la vie de une studiente de musique. The majority of the show today was composed of "The Rake's Progress," which was put on by the University of Michigan as an official production. I went to the show twice--Saturday and Sunday, to see both casts--and I was really pleased with what I saw and heard.

  17. University of Michigan Opera Theatre: Act I - Armide
  1. Rake's Progress: 'nuff said. 
  2. Armide: Damn! It was nice to hear this again after singing it sophomore year. Thanks to the listener that suggested playing someone done by the University! 
  3. Frieeeeends: It was awesome to have someone to talk to on the show for more than a few minutes. 
  1. Rake's Progress in Italian: Um, ew. That was atrocious. I'm still happy I played it, 
  2. Levels: I didn't realize how quiet the music was. With headphones on it comes through really clearly, but when I was listening back to it, you could barely hear the music. I'll remember that. 
  3. Less talking?: Although I really enjoyed talking to Peter, I wonder if it was too much talking. Is that something you want on a Sunday morning, or would you rather have straight music?
More updates to come! Thanks for sticking with me!
