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.

Are you ready for some football? Well, be sure to stop by the "House" on Thursday evening beginning at 7 pm for the annual NFL Round Table program, featuring discussions and predictions, on The Frat House Sports Show #203.
The guys are looking across the entire NFL landscape as training camps open and all 32 teams have high expectations for the 2015 season. The off-season was far from quiet for many teams, players and NFL executives however, and the discussions touch on some of the more notorious stories and scandals, as well as which franchises appear to have made improvement "on paper". Is your team positioned to move up or head south? Be sure to weigh-in with your thoughts, too.
Yep, the optimism at this time of year is palpable with some "new" coaches, young rookies and vested veterans signed up and preparing to throw down for at least the next 22 weeks. Of course ... not everything is smooth and not everyone is happy as news of suspensions, fines and appeals continue to bring negative attention to the "shield". Roger Goodell "the enforcer" can't seem to get out of his own way and his decisions continue to appear arbitrary at best, or wholly misguided at worst.
Also, the fellas find 20 minutes or so to explore recent stories from NHL & NBA headlines, including how realignment could look with 8 divisions of hockey (really?), why did Lou "leaf"? and Adam Silver's 'elite 8' concept for hoops playoff action in '15-'16. Get in the "House" and give 'em a call to: 347-826-9964.

While taking some well needed rest this past weekend, I chose to re-experience one of my favorite movies, Fantasia. As I watched the familiar story of The Sorcerer's Apprentice, it struck me that it carried a message about wellness and how we are often tempted to seek a short-cut to reach our holistic goals. Today we'll be exploring the lessons of this simple story and identifying the insights that can help us avoid getting caught in a whirlpool of our own making.
After the show I will be checking into the chatroom for questions and comments.
Get in the game this Tuesday evening at 7 pm, with the "Frat Boys" Nick, Sean & Caleb; they're running the bases in a truly unique edition of Frat House Sports' Clean-Up Hitters #20.
Tick, tock, tick, tock...the countdown to the MLB Trade Deadline is fast approaching and the results have been a flurry of activity in both the rumor and franchise markets. The guys will be discussing the fact and fiction surrounding Cole Hamels, Yasiel Puig, Johnny Cueto...Chase Utley? Seriously? It's a "buyers' market" and maybe a "fire sale" all over the baseball landscape with just 3 days left!
On Sunday the MLB Hall of Fame recognized 4 new inductees and the guys are offering up their impressions of one of the most electric (and eclectic) "class" in the Hall's history. Plus, man-oh-man...Commissioner Rob Manfred recently commented on "hot-button" issues including: pushing back the trade deadline, how the league anticipates more Cuban inclusion (expansion?) and his "pending" meeting with Pete Rose.
Of course, a look at the (meaningless?) "power rankings" and the (meaningful !) scores/standings from Caleb's Sports Machine is on-deck; a surprise or 2, and the popular weekly Series Streak Challenge has to be updated...who is that in the Lead there? Yep. The boys are in scoring position, so call in your thoughts LIVE to 347-826-9964 beginning at 7 pm (edt) !
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.

Please join me along with my guest Christian Kyriacou, The House Whisperer as we discuss the psychotherapy of home. We will explore such ideas as Does your house make you sick? Can our homes hold the key to good health and wellbeing? How does your home influence your life and particularly your health, and can it help to heal you? Why we choose the homes we do?

Christian has appeared on international television and radio since 1993 as an inspirational speaker. His work with the spatial energy of buildings engages particularly with how aspects of acoustics, vibration, music and harmonics relate to sacred geometry in architectural spaces including our homes, which in turn affect human consciousness. He is especially interested in the Vedic scriptures, the Sanskrit language and various meditation practices. His study of ancient cultures and world religions include spending time in Greece, much of Europe, Egypt, India, Tibet and China, the United States, Canada and other countries. He is passionate about fusing classical principles of architecture with contemporary materials and ideologies, incorporating sacred geometry and proportion, musical ratios and harmonic resonance, in keeping with the spirit of the land.
He offers workshops on a wide range of subjects, and advises clients and other professionals on architectural projects from the perspective of The House Whisperer. His guidance is provided in a no-nonsense accessible language whereby the individual can take responsibility for resolving issues that led them to him in the first place!
Christian lives in Kingston upon Thames, England.
