I am speaking in complete phrases!

I realized yesterday that I am speaking in more complete phrases, rather than just shooting out words. Italians I have befriended here have noticed and provided encouragement! Woo-Hoo!

Last night we presented our second night of opera scenes and arias. I joined in on the encore "O sole mio," however other than that I was off in preparation for my big Suor Angelica performance this next week. The singers I am with are just fabulous and as you'll see from some of my pics, we had a wonderful evening!

My mom and Dave arrive in Piobbico tomorrow afternoon. They are here for the week and the opera and then we will all head to Venice. I am so excited to actually get to share this place with people I love!

I am still growing all the time: learning about how to use my body more effectively, as well as my instrument. I am studying my character and deepening my understanding of the language. I have realized (once again) that in order to really learn something and grow in something, one must DO IT! Living in Piobbico where most people do not speak any English has totally forced me to grow in my Italian - what a gift! Working on the opera all day, everyday has helped me to grow in ways that I just can't in a school environment. That is partly why things like this exist! If you are a young singer and you are reading this, I encourage you to attend a program such as this as soon as you can! There is no way to learn and grow like this at home or at school. In fact, being here has helped me to reexamine the steps I am currently taking to improve my craft and consider additional means of learning , growing and developing as an opera singer. *Yes, I am being intentionally vague. I have not figured everything out yet, but I promise to share once I do!

As I head into the weekend, I head into a very full time of rehearsals and the like. Tomorrow we will actually run the entire Il Trittico, straight through for the first time. EXCITING!

I'll let you know how it went!
Ciao mi amici!

There are also websites that are opted to only gather information of the person joining the game for them to use on some other purposes outside the website.

The reason why there is a line is because one team is going to be favored over another to win the game. This way the oddsmakers can level the playing field, making the bet attractive to both sides. In this case San Diego is the favorite and New England is the underdog. This means that if you are placing your bet on San Diego, the Chargers will have to beat the Patriots by at least 3 points for you to win the bet. If they lose the game or win by less than 3, you lose your bet. The second number shows 44, which is the over/under score. By betting the over, you are putting money on the possibility that the sum of both team’s score will be greater than 44-points at the end of the game.
