This fine Monday morning, I point you to Unfinished No More – a recent blog post by bass-baritone Alan Held. If you’re curious about what a career in opera is like on the ground level, it’s a must-read. (And I mean you, voice students out there.) Alan and I started out together at Wolf Trap many years ago, and he is a consummate musician, colleague and human being. I’m sure it took a good deal of time, care and courage to write this post, and I’m grateful to him for his willingness to tell this honest story of the rewards and risks of a career in our industry.
