My aunt-in-law (is that a real thing?) just had an amazing past few days. She made her Metropolitan Opera DebutÖin a leading role. Christine Brewer is her name, and let me tell yaÖthe girl can wail!!!!
She sang at Josh and Sarahís weddingÖand was out of this world.
What makes her such a unique person is how she went about forming her carrer. Every opera singer dreams of performing at the Met. Well, Chris, started humbly in the chorus of the St. Louis OperaÖand it grew from there. She has never lost the small town girl in her. In fact she still lives in Lebanon, ILÖ(exactly, I have no clue where it isÖdown by St. Louis I am told).
The neatest part about the debut is that the received a standing ovation after her first aria (a very rare thing).
