Musical Words: Stephanie Blythe and Shirley Verrett

Off to hear the great American mezzo Stephanie Blythe tonight. Here she is at the Tucker Gala in 2000 in Carmen. She also sings Irving Berlin and Cole Porter!

If you are in DC and a singing fan, there may still be some tickets left for tonight’s performance at the Kennedy Center.

And because You Tube is the way it is, here’s a scorching version of the same scene with the incomparable Shirley Verrett.
