The Opera is open to all Vanderbilt
students by audition. They do get non-majors audition. The great thing is
is that a lot of new American opera is being written for this age. And they
understand it beautifully. They appreciate singing in their own
language and about their own history. Particularly these two pieces. I forget
that they’re not voice majors because they integrate so nicely. Everybody
immerses themselves really well together and they like to play in this sandbox
together a lot.
