The Sopranos project is a series of videos based on great sopranos which have contributed immeasurably to this art form and who are fast being forgotten. Such sopranos have always inspired me throughout my career.
These short videos are to share my admiration and appreciation of these amazing singers. I want to share with you their lives, their talent and what made them great, coming from my own personal perspective. From my own experience of this music world, I hope to share with you some unique insights.
Researching, studying and listening to their recordings have always been part of my own process of preparing for performances. Sopranos! continue to inform and deepen my experience as a singer and performer which I will be delighted to share with you on this website
From Handel to Cohen
FROM HANDEL TO COHEN is a series of home-recorded videos of a varied range of repetoire. This is a new and challenging medium of performing for me, but it is one which most musicians are embracing since the Covid19 restrictions.
I am singing a varied genre of music from classical songs and arias, popular songs, and ballads…basically songs of all types that I have loved listening to over the years. That is why I have called the project “From Handel To Cohen”.
I have always listened to and enjoyed an ecclectic range of music, apart from classical. The music chosen gives me personally, a lot of pleasure which I hope to share with you. Because I will be performing with a classically trained voice, some of the more ‘popular’ songs songs may not be what you are expecting to hear. But hopefully, my rendition of any given song might resonate Either way, it is exciting trying out something new with you!
Learning the basics of audio and video recording is a totally new language in itself and necessary for social media. Home-recording may not be ideal (as yet) but it does offer me an intimate performance opportunity to explore and share with you. For me, a live performance will always be my first choice, but I hope to develop a different yet still viable method of performance which will have its own place.
It would be nice to hear from you as to what you liked or felt worked or if you have suggestions I could try out…always welcome.
