Denise Stuart commented on Angela Meade and her New York futureSo, where was Angela Meade these past few years? Look south, my friend! She was studying at the world-renowned Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia! Angela prepared the role of NORMA here, with AVA's music director and conductor, Christofer Macatsoris, and performed it this past January in a concert called OPERATIC MASTERPIECES, which featured highlights from NORMA plus Act lV of IL TROVATORE at the Kimmel Center. BTW, Angela is by no means the only AVA singer who is bursting onto the international opera scene. She is joined by Joyce DiDonato, Burak Bilgili, Stephen Costello, Ellie Dehn, Michael Fabiano, Eglise Gutierrez, Latonia Moore, Ailyn Pérez, and James Valenti. Oh yes, and the OTHER soprano star of the Caramoor Festival this summer is AVA's Takesha Meshe Kizart in MARIA DI ROHAN, not to mention that baritone Daniel Mobbs, also in NORMA, is an AVA graduate.
