Don't Cry Out Loud: Guest Post for Sparks & Wirey Cries

I was thrilled to be approached recently by Canadian soprano Martha Guth to contribute to the fabulous website Sparks & Wiry Cries that celebrates the art of the song recital!  Martha and her collaborative partner in song and S&WC Erika Switzer have this to say about their site:

We here at Sparks & Wiry Cries are very proud of our contribution to song. There is always a lot of speculation among veteran and younger song performers about the ‘dying art of the recital’. We would like to end that discussion right here and right now. One of the main reasons for this site is because we want you all to know of everything that is taking place throughout North America and beyond, in our beloved genre every day. This is a place where all song lovers can come together and share, realizing that indeed, their art is flourishing.

Head on over to their blog to read my article "Don't Cry Out Loud: Sing It!" where I discuss some of my methods in choosing repertoire for my students based on more than their technical singing needs!

PS - if you have a song recital coming up in your community, drop S&WC a line so they can list it in their directory!
