First year with Sarasota Orchestra: 2019

Favorite piece of music: Shane says, "I think it is truly impossible to pick a favorite work; however, a piece which I often return to is Lúa Descolorida for soprano and piano by Osvaldo Golijov, which is a setting of a poem by Rosalía de Castro and a tremendously touching, beautiful combination of lyrics, melody, and harmony."
