Concert Review: AVA's Annual Program of Classical Russian Vocal Music -- AN EVENING OF RUSSIAN ROMANCES
WRTI's Lesley Valdes reviews the December 14th recital of Russian opera and song by the Academy of Vocal Arts' entire roster of young opera singers.
Some artists were unavailable for the first AVA Russian Romances video invitation. Next day, four AVA artists won Philadelphia round of Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and one artist was wrapping up a production with Virginia Opera.
After another rehearsal, we shot Part II. AVA Artists in this video are Jan Cornelius, Zach Borichevsky, Wes Mason, Chloé Moore and Christian Bowers.
