After winning the 1st Amadeus Arts Scholarship to the Amadeus International School in Vienna, Austria, my 16-yr-old student Astrid has just received the Performance Award from the Bel Canto Institute in Florence, Italy! Following her week at in NYC at the Broadway Artist Alliance program, she was sent to New Platz (NY) to spend a week studying with Jane Klaviter from the Metropolitan Opera, and then sang in two performances in New York in early August. The other 3 winners were all college graduates, with two of them in graduate school! If you would like to hear and see her (well worth it!), go to: Astrid 

​Nancy  presented The Art of Russian Song at the ASMTA Conference in June in Scottsdale, sing 7 song in Russian during the presentation and 3 songs in Russian at the banquet. Afterward, Dr Mikhail Yanovitsky came up to congratulate her, saying, "You remind me of a Russian singer from the 1900s," and at a confused look, added, "That's a compliment!" Phew! Got the pronunciation right!
