Opera Naples- Don Giovanni

I have been fortunate to be a part of the Opera Naples Orchestra since the company began seven years ago. On the playbill this week was Mozart’s Don Giovanni. I was excited because I have always wanted to perform this piece. Playing in the orchestra is really a rewarding experience. Working on the part helps improve my playing skills and working in the orchestra keeps me a well-rounded musician, I think. It requires such a  high level of concentration! I really enjoyed playing with Gail Picha and Barbara Lounsbury in the viola section! As always Stephanie Pearce, the founder of Opera Naples has chosen exceptional singers and the conductor Franz Vote was a real pleasure to work with! I am really proud to be a part  of these productions.

Here is a picture of Gail, Barbara and me along with the conductor.

Next month we tackle Gounod’s Faust.
