Dear musicians, music lovers, writers and all the rest of you,
I have spent most of my life singing and teaching. Now I have discovered another passion, and have just finished writing my first novel, based on my experiences in the opera world.
Two of my favorite novels which inspired me are The Song of the Lark by Willa Cather and Bel Cantoby Ann Patchett.
Here's a quote for the day, from one of my mentors, George Trovillo (1913-2003):
If singing is to reflect life, then it must, at all times, be alive. And it must flow, flow, flow.
