Women’s Voices Concert

Everyone is welcome to the dress rehearsal of my upcoming concert. On behalf of the other performers I thank you in advance for allowing us to do it at the church. You will hear Gabrielle Gilliam and Kayla Nanto, two singers from The Dallas Opera’s Education and Outreach program, for which I am the Music Director. We are performing music of many outstanding women composers as well as a few men! The concert is semi-staged by our Touring Manager Ryan Lescalleet.
