I am not an angel and do not pretend to be. That is not one of my roles. But I am not a devil, either. I am a woman and a serious artist, and I would like so to be judged.Maria Callas

So excited to be participating in this. Tune in on Sunday December 8th!
This week I’ve been so very thankful for a particular group of people in my life: my singer friends and colleagues. When you’re a singer, you naturally accumulate friends in the same profession, as you work together at various companies, concerts, and gigs. After the performances are done, you may drift apart, and only catch up at another audition or performance.
But I’m thankful for my singer friends because they are more than just friends of convenience or circumstance. Opera can be an infinitely difficult and frustrating business. Sometimes you feel as though you are moving two steps backward for every one step you take forward, and at times like those, your friends are the thing that keeps you going. My singer friends support me, encourage me, and keep me focused. Your singer friends can give you the real dirt on a company they’ve worked for. They can help you polish your website, or edit your resume. And sometimes they tell you what you need (not want) to hear.
If you’re a singer, or a musician, find good friends in your field. And keep them close.

I’m so bummed that I’m going to be busy on Sunday afternoon, but that means that all of the rest of you should watch this excellent panel and listen to these smart people talk about modern opera.
