My iTunes: Vedrai, Carino from Mozart's Don Giovanni
Well, I believe today will be the last installment of Project: Yellow. Thanks, Anna, for starting the trend and to everyone else for following on and being a great little community of post-ers and comment-ers! Check out some of Anna's pictures, and she has a collection of links to the nearly 70 people who have joined in on this project!
I thought I would close with a timeless shot -- marbles. I played lots of different games with marbles as a child, and my grandmothers and great-grandmother used to tell stories about how they used to play with marbles when they were little. Marbles just don't seem to change, and they come in all different colors -- including yellow!
This song is one of the first arias I ever sung. It's quite fun and very catchy. I find myself singing it randomly while doing the dishes or folding laundry or typing up a blog post... I need to start getting into high gear to get ready for my audition. I have to work on my Italian diction, my sight singing (that's going to need a lot of work...), and my audition pieces: Black Swan from Gian Carlo Menotti's The Medium and In Uomini, In Soldati from Mozart's Cosi fan Tutte. Wish me luck as I practice and prepare for 10 May!
THE END of PROJECT YELLOW
