On Valentines Day, February 14th, I premiered at the Atlanta Symphony in a project with the Alliance Theater entitled ‘My Family Valentine.’ This was a program designed for families with children, in an attempt to introduce them to great symphonic and operatic composers such as Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, and more. I was fortunate to be able to participate in this project, especially with a wonderful friend and operatic colleague of mine, Soprano Allison Mion. After weeks of rehearsal the day finally came, and we both reveled in reflection about the experience we had of working with a wonderfully creative director and production manager, a professional sound and costume crew, the incredible Atlanta Symphony musicians, and being able to work closely with conductor Joseph Young.
The production went by without a flaw, and the children in the audience loved every minute of it. Afterwards we had a meet and greet in the lobby, and many of the children were excited to come and meet us and take pictures together.
