DiDonato's Anthem

An opera critic's take on the National Anthem: operating without any arranger's concepts (something that Renee Fleming had to deal with at the Super Bowl) Joyce DiDonato did what good opera singers do - invested each line with significance and intent, and added a lovely octave leap at the finish. Brava! BTW, she's not just a KC native - she got her training at SF Opera's Merola Program. A perfect choice.
