Spotlight on the Studio!

2014-08-13 20.12.41

Last night’s Studio Spotlight performance for Wolf Trap Members was a rousing success. These terrific undergrad and first-year grad singers outdid themselves in a program directed by Alison Moritz, conducted by Stephanie Rhodes, and played by Emily Senturia and Michael Sherman.

They did outstanding work in a summer that included chorus assignments in three operas, an Instant Opera project, the Les Six concert of French vocal music, supporting roles in Les mamelles de Tirésias (tickets still available for tomorrow night!) and countless seminars and coachings. This morning, they were here in audition attire starting at 10:30 for auditions in front of our guest panel of VIPs from four opera companies and two management firms. They have our admiration, respect and gratitude!
