I performed the role of Nella in Gianni Schicchi for the International Vocal Arts Academy in Tel-Aviv in July 2010. This prestigious summer academy is headed by the legendary Joan Dornemann from the Metropolitan Opera in New York. I was able to work intensively with Mignon Dunne (a classy lady!), Tomer Zvulun and Lucy Arner during her time in Israel.
I would like to thank the Opera & Arts Support Group and the Colby Family for their generous assistance in getting me to Tel-Aviv to participate in the programme.
