The Focus on the Singing, a Pure Pleasure

by Virginia Pond, BCO Supporter

As a sometime backstage worker, I am often distracted, watching a performance, by an unfortunate wig, a costume problem, an annoying mannerism or odd direction. I love the theatre of a production, and sometimes pay more attention to that than to the music. With Baltimore Concert Opera, and the friendliness of the audience and the Engineers' Club ballroom, I can focus on the singing. I am struck by the joy -- and the commitment -- of the singers doing what they love and have chosen to do with their lives -- sing. And how well they do it! BCO is pure pleasure.
