Sorry for the long absence, but you know, sometimes life happens. Stupid needy life...
Anywho, let's jump back into the BC world. First up, a quick shout out to Tamara Wilson on her recent win of the Richard Tucker Award! Not that we needed this award to inform us of how amazing Tammy is as a singer and performer. Congrats!!

Now let's get some new members into the BC family. First up, a woman who needs no introduction-
What can I say about this women that hasn't already been said? "Christine Goerke is the Wagner-Strauss soprano we have been waiting for, a multi-hued miracle of gale-force power, and pin point control, effortlessly riding over the most clamoring orchestras." Yeah, she's kind of a big deal. Her voice is a true tour de force. My wife describes Ms. Goerke as her spirit animal. You haven't heard of Le Goerke? Oh, well I'll give you a few moments while you click on her link above and listen to her for awhile. No, go on, I'll wait... You back now? Well, am I right or what??? And on top of the incredible instrument, she is one of the best colleagues you could ever hope to work with. Kind, generous, funny, with a magical unicorn voice? Yes please. She is currently singing Brunnhilde at Houston Grand Opera.
Sing loud and carry a big stick. A pointy pointy stick.
"His voice has power and beauty throughout its impressive compass, including a ringing upper register to rival a tenor’s..." That's a pretty good way of describing Will's voice. Another would be to say that after 15 seconds of hearing him sing, you start to hate him because of how talented he is. The man can flat out sing!! Bonus points for being an all around stand up guy. He's also a ambassador for opera. Chatting up strangers and locals he meets while out to dinner or at a bar and getting them tickets to the show he is currently in - what a guy! Expanding operas audience - that's what Will Liverman is all about. Also, his original YouTube song cycles are the Die schöne Müllerin of the modern day. Ok ok but did Schubert write a tribute lied to Wendy's? Yeah, didn't think so. Seriously, go watch it. Will is currently gearing up for a Le Comte Ory at Seattle Opera.
There is a zero percent chance most of us will ever look this cool. Ever.
