This fundraising concert was organized by the talented Carol Wong, whose playing is always a standard of excellence. The program had stars and young artists from the Opera Theatre of St. Louis, and each was featured in 2 songs of their choosing. I really enjoyed being able to pick any two songs that I wanted, and chose “Joy”, by Ricky Ian Gordon, and “What Wealth of Rapture”, by Rachmaninov.
The concert was outstanding! Each person shined in a different way, and I was so impressed with how Carol put together all of these different songs to form a cohesive program. We raised $53,000 altogether for the Siteman Cancer Center, which will aid in research. I feel grateful to be able to sing for a good cause. :-)
