There are 3 things to say about last weekend's Rossini concert.
1. Rossini knew how to write for the voice.
It's an incredible understanding that he had for how a singer uses her instrument and how to really use bel canto style to create an expression, not just an idea of a phrase.
2. Relationships make it all happen.
Having a great relationship with the performing ensemble (in this case the Bel Canto Chorus of Milwaukee, WI) and having a great relationship with several audience members makes for a meaningful, memorable performance. It's another expression of our interconnectedness as human beings.
