This year has basically stunk for live performance. I’ve particiapted in just a couple of virtual projects. I have two new opportunities coming up.
The Cleveland Opera just invited me to participate in a project in which I will video record 2 to 3 arias. They are gathering recordings of several past performers and will publish them online. I will make these recordings sometime in the next 2 weeks with a live pianist.
Also coming up is a virtual recording of Amahl and the Night Visitors with Cleveland Opera Theater. This one will require quite a bit more coordination as they’ll be synching up recordings from 6 singers and a pianist. This will also be completed within the next 2 to 3 weeks.
So, things are still happening musically. They’re just… different.
