This morning I left Toronto on an early flight for my annual trip to the West Coast. Over the next few days I will hear some of the most talented young singers in North America, first here in Santa Barbara, where the annual Marilyn Horne Song Competition will take place all day tomorrow, and then in San Francisco at the Merola YAP Conference.
It was the most gorgeous day here and I had the good fortune to spend my afternoon outside at the pool with a copy of the latest number of Opera News where I am featured as Opera's Next Wave. A great honour.
A lot of my colleagues from all over the world will be here as well as in San Francisco and I look forward to spending time with them. But now I am off for a long overdue catch-up dinner with Joshua Winograde, the Artistic Administrator of Los Angeles Opera.
