I had the opportunity to hear over 60 aspiring high school singers over two days at the Boston University Tanglewood Institute this past weekend. Then on Sunday, I got to hear some of the Young Artists at the Glimmerglass Festival. It's exciting to hear young singers at varying degrees of their development. It's especially invigorating to see and hear high school singers at the very beginning of their journey. Another example of "it's the journey, not the destination!"
