I’m home … we are finished with Don G. Today felt so much better. It was cooler in the hall, so I wasn’t dying from the heat, and I felt that the intonation was much better.

I loved hearing these young and talented singers. This group of Merola Folk were wonderful. Maybe someday we’ll see and hear some of them singing with the Big Guys. Time will tell. Here are some names I’ll be watching out for:

  • Adam Cioffari (Masetto)
  • Rena Harms (Donna Elvira)
  • Joélle Harvey (Zerlina)
  • Austin Kness (Don Giovanni)
  • David Lomelí (Don Ottavio)
  • Amanda Mejeski (Donna Anna)
  • Carols Monzón (Leperello)
  • Ben Wager (Commendatore)
  • … and, of course, SF Mike as the human table!

    Now to dinner, whatever that might be!

  1. whoa. amanda went to northwestern with me. we were in the same conducting class. she sang lauretta in NU’s production of gianni schicchi, and her “o mio babbino caro” was amazing. glad to see she’s already on her way.
