It is a special gift to become a great pianist.   Surely, every opera singer will agree that it is essential to have a talented and sensitive pianist who can accompany the artist singer.  One who will collaborate and best represent the composer’s music, while making the necessary connection with the singer to compliment and ensure the perfect harmony.  For these reasons and more, it is with great pleasure that we recognize and rely on the  superior musicianship of our dedicated accompanists to provide our contestants the very best foundation for their performances and participation.  Please welcome back:
