Thanks to baritone Matthew Giallongo, for singing two of my Three Italian Songs on his Master’s Recital tonight at Temple University. He has a beautiful voice and sang “Autunno” and “Morire” with a great depth of feeling. Kristen Kiekel accompanied with precision and warmth.
Matthew is a student of Lawrence Indik, who has done me the great honor over the years of not only singing my songs but also of recommending them to others. If there is praise higher than that, I cannot think of it.
I am grateful to him, and also to Sheryl Woods and Randi Marrazzo at Temple, who have done the same. So blessed by the support of such wonderful people, and so happy to have gotten to hear Matthew Giallongo tonight. Bravo!
