After watching “The Audition” some years ago on HD, I had the opportunity to attend the delightful National Council Audition last week at the Met. There were nine finalists chosen from over 1500 artists. These sensational young artists got to perform two arias with the Met Orchestra in front of a packed house. It doesn’t get more exciting than this. Spoiler Alert: Angela Meade, one of the finalists in the documentary, introduced the Finalists and performed two lovely arias.
Fortunately, we were able to attend this remarkable and joyous feast of music with our good friends the DeGuzmans and several of their now grown-up kids.
If you haven’t seen The Audition documentary, I suggest you download it now and rejoice in the lovely voices of these gifted and hard-working performers. They are all winners in my book!
