Tracy Dahl

Thursday evening I was truly fortunate to have my favorite kind of musical experience at an event for Merola Opera supporters. In a small salon-like atmosphere at the Metropolitan Club, soprano Tracy Dahl appeared with Mark Morash as accompanist. Ms. Dahl sang songs by Mozart, Mahler, Debussy & Lee Hoiby. As an encore, she charmed us with an aria from Mignon. In that setting, everything she did had an immediate & immersive impact. The gathering was so informal & intimate that I could have eye contact from Ms. Dahl. This is how the music is meant to be appreciated, & it was very special.
