Second recital in US, tonight, September 23

Tonight Angela sings the second recital in US, after the much acclaimed one in Los Angeles. This time fans on the other coast will enjoy the beautiful program at the Indiana University Auditorium in Bloomington, Indiana.

As a part of the IU Auditorium’s 75th season, Angela's performance will “pay homage to the early days of the Auditorium, when (the building) frequently housed touring presentations from the Metropolitan Opera.” said Maria Talbert, the IU Auditorium’s managing director, in an interview for Indiana Daily Student

Mon coeur is still in the program, I'm still not able to listen to it live. My time will come, someday :)

Jeff Cohen will accompany Angela at the piano.
