Kostis and I met while working at the Santa Fe Opera. He is a wonderful musician/conductor/pianist. I very much enjoyed working with him as a singer. I was also very excited when he asked me to build his website.
Lauren McNeese is an amazing mezzo-soprano. She has sung at the Metropolitan Opera, Chicago Lyric Opera, the Los Angeles Opera, and many other places. I met her back in 2004 when she was visiting the Santa Fe Opera.
