Piece: Vincenzo Bellini — Almen se non poss'io
Why do you love to perform?
I love to perform because it is what I have discovered to be my calling in life. Music is what makes me who I am, and performing allows me to share my love for it with those around me. As a musician/performer, I hope to someday teach others the joys of choral music, like my wonderful high school choir director Shelly Kline. I chose this piece because of how much I love the emotion that is conveyed through the text and I also love the variety in range.
