@ VOL 1 ON MAY 27, 2016

"There are at least a few common myths about opera that should be debunked!"

In When the Fat Lady Sings, Does She Wear a Mic? from PechaKucha Night Baton Rouge Vol. 1, mezzo-soprano, Katherine Sherwood White debunks the myths surrounding opera. Sherwood White has performed leading roles with Cincinnati Opera, Central City Opera, Kentucky Opera Theater and Texas Opera Theater. She holds a bachelor of music degree from Northwestern State University, a master of music degree from the University of Texas and a doctor of musical arts degree from the University of Kentucky.
