A SINGER'S SUITCASE
Opera Magazine feature by Roger Pines
"The assertion 'she can sing anything' is generally suspect, but where Elizabeth DeShong is concerned it's true. Handel and Rossini, Humperdinck and Mahler, Verdi and Puccini, Britten, Sondheim, Rodgers and Hammerstein, the American mezzo-soprano sings them all impeccably. When presented with such prowess in matters of technique, musicianship and style, the listener can simply sit back and enjoy, taking in the voice and the invariably apposite expressive intent that colors it." - Roger Pines

May 17-19, 2019
Fusing operatic drama, gorgeous solo moments and symphonic prowess, Verdi’s Requiem is a transcendent musical rollercoaster well suited to the gift of Edward Gardner, a renowned conductor of symphonies and operas worldwide.
A Singer's Suitcase
"As a professional opera singer, I spend the majority of each year away from home. With luggage, camera, and scores in hand, I take off to different parts of the world to make music. With this blog, I hope to create a daily reminder that with travel you always take away more than you arrived with, but the most important of these things can't be put in a suitcase." -Elizabeth
