A B1G #WeAre congratulations to Julia Wolcott!

We’re approaching our final week of the season, and I’m honored to share that I was awarded the Sarasota Opera Guild Anne J. O’Donnell Award for an Outstanding Apprentice Artist! I have enjoyed learning from my colleagues and the fantastic staff at SO, and above all I have been incredibly grateful to sing this music that I love so much.

We still have a busy week ahead - we’ll be performing Attila, Daughter of the Regiment, Tosca, Pearl Fishers, Voices of Sarasota Opera Orchestra concert, and our final scenes concert. 🎼
