What does it take to WOW the refined world of high Opera? Join us as mezzo-soprano Elizabeth DeShong talks about Opera, song, and life.
Born and raised in northcentral Pennsylvania, opera singer Elizabeth DeShong has been lauded in North America and Europe for her "well-cultivated" and "big, bright and pleasing" voice; EDGE San Francisco said, "“...DeShong sings like a vocal giant. Her lowest notes have body and depth; her midrange is rich and compelling; and her highs are dispensed with a freedom that many a mezzo daily prays for. ”
She has performed with The Metropolitan Opera, English National Opera, Canadian Opera Company, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Lyric Opera of Chicago, San Francisco Opera, Radio Symphonie Orchestre Wien, among others, and at the Glyndebourne Festival in England.
DeShong received a master's degree from the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, after which she was accepted into the young artist program at the Lyric Opera of Chicago's Ryan Opera Center.
The recipient of numerous awards, Ms. DeShong received the Washington National Opera’s “Artist of the Year Award” in 2010 for her debut performance as the Composer in Richard Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos. Her portrayal of Maffio Orsini in the San Francisco Opera’s Lucrezia Borgia was widely released on DVD.
Further performances of note include Maffio Orsini in Lucrezia Borgia with San Franciso Opera and English National Opera, Angelina in La Cenerentola at the Canadian Opera Company, Hermia in A Midsummer Night's Dream at Lyric Opera of Chicago, and her sensational Rosina in THE BARBER OF SEVILLE with the Los Angeles Opera.

Most people are unaware that classical singers face many of the same roadeblocks that actors face when it comes to typecasting and stereotypes. Today we take an interesting look at "Fach-isms", vocal stereotypes and you can learn to love it, accept it, work with it, but most importantly "lean in" to it.
My guest for today is international operatic sensation, Phillip K. Bullock. Phillip is a native of Washington D. C., has been featured in recitals, concerts, and operas both nationally and internationally. Recently, Mr. Bullock performed the role of Jake in Porgy and Bess at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City, Mexico. Mr. Bullock has also been seen in performances of Porgy and Bess in Copenhagen, Denmark with the Royal Danish Opera. Other notable operatic performances include Figaro in Le nozze di Figaro, Papageno in the Magic Flute, John Brook in Mark Adamo's Little Women, the Marquis D'Obgny in La Traviata, and Jake Wallace in last season's production of La Fanciulla del West with Kentucky Opera. In summer of 2015, in addition to making his debut with Maryland Lyric Opera, Mr. Bullock was the baritone soloist in Brahms' Ein Deutsches Requiem with the National Music Festival Orchestra. This upcoming season, as a Young Artist with Kentucky Opera, he can be seen in performances of Verdi’s Macbeth, and various concerts and recitals.

Ahhhhh .... fresh of a good night's rest, I rolled out of bed, cranked up my computer and, just like a soap opera you've missed for a week, not much has changed.
The Smurfs occupy the White House and a sustaining minority in both the House and Senate. This gives them the veto and the Filibuster. The Elmos hold a substantial majority in both congressional chambers giving them agenda control and the ability to bring any bills to a vote and even pass most of them. Getting those bills signed or overriding a veto is an entirely different matter and a veritable impossibility.
Neither side seems willing to compromise much so what is the point? Why pass bills that have no chance of being inked by the prez? Why make presidential proposals that have no chance of seeing the light of day?
From the President's $4 trillion Budget dreams to the Elmos vision of a world without Obamacare, futility seems bountiful and needs to be addressed.
Also, Iran and John Kerry are just driving me nuts so we will jump into their centrifuge once again.
All of this and more on Tonight's episode of Jump Right In ..... Remember, In my pond EVERYONE swims at their own risk ... See? Nothing ever changes.
