Gunn’s Blazing

by Suzanne Calvin

“Nathan Gunn is the whole package. He possesses a natural and magnificent baritone voice that is even from top to bottom. Although it sounds like he just woke up one morning and could sing perfectly, there is a secure technique behind his obviously God-given abilities.

Hot Szot

by Suzanne Calvin

The name is pronounced “Shot,” by the way.  POW-low SHOT.  Hope you won money on that one. “Dallas audiences ARE in for a treat” any way you pronounce it. I’m counting the days until the arrival of baritone Paulo Szot to begin rehearsals for our season opener: Mozart’s retelling of the Don Juan legend, “Don Giovanni.” And […]

Coming to a Square Near You
