BWW Review: NABUCCO at The Metropolitan OperaBWW Review: NABUCCO at The Metropolitan Opera
by Milette shanon - January 5, 2017

"Power to the people" could very well be the mantra for the gorgeous opera Nabucco highlighted by the inspiring Va Pensiero chorus sung by the Hebrew slaves as they pray to G-d for their dream to return to their homeland of Jerusalem to take flight. As I sat in the Metropolitan opera house recently, witnessing the opera with several thousand others, I have to believe that there was no one in that audience who was not moved.

BWW Blog: Bob Marks - Finding Music That Suits YouBWW Blog: Bob Marks - Finding Music That Suits You
by Guest Blogger: Bob Marks - January 3, 2017

Just as you would build a wardrobe, with varied outfits for different occasions and temperatures, your music repertoire book needs to feature a diverse selection of pieces to show you can handle different sorts of singing demands. Not every song can (or should be) a show-stopper, full of dramatic heft and long, sustained high notes at the top of your range. Sometimes, it's more important to demonstrate naturalness and vulnerability, or show that you understand the needs of a very specific musical style. It's valuable to have many different kinds of songs in your "toolbox" to exhibit the full scope of your strengths.  (more...)
