MN at the Met: Coda

An update on the Met Finals:

Sunday night, Minnesota Opera Resident Artists Seth Keeton and John Michael Moore were among nine singers to perform at the finals of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions.

Alas, neither of these wonderful singers took top honors, but I heard they were both happy with how they sang and thrilled to just be there. And the exposure they received performing at the Met will be a huge boost to their careers. The only down side of this is the likelihood that as their careers flourish, they'll be called away from Minnesota Opera more often. To get a sample of their voices, hear their studio performances recorded here at MPR, and tune in May 3 at 8pm for a broadcast of all the finalists. Congrats to Seth and John!
