On a very warm April Fool’s Day, a full afternoon’s worth of prospective singers from across Central Texas participated in the very first round of One Ounce Opera auditions.
Singing pieces spanning centuries – Mozart to Puccini, Rossini to Sondheim – talented vocalists shared their gifts and gave inspired performances of arias, art songs, musical theater gems, and even a few torch songs.
In hindsight, we should have sold tickets to this great event! 🙂
The sheer display of positive energy and vocal “chops” made my decisions that much more difficult.
That being said…
…I am so, so ready to announce the results!
New Members of the One Ounce Opera Ensemble include:
Erin Bales, Emily Breedlove, Claudia Chapa, Tamsen Cohagan, Cristina Flores, Davy Green, Michael J. Holderer, Jake Jacobsen, Elise Leung, and Brian Pettey.
Ann Sauder, David Small, Rebekah Smeltzer and I are excited to have the chance to sing with this diverse and unique group of talented people.
Special thanks to Jeanne Sasaki for playing the auditions, and to Central Presbyterian Church for hosting us.
If you would like to donate your space and host a rehearsal or an official OOO meeting, please let us know ASAP!
We will keep you updated as we move forward. Exciting times await us.
