In a message from the Met Opera National Council Operations:
We are pleased to announce the 2012 National Council Audition Winners:
JANAI BRUGGER – Soprano
ANTHONY CLARK EVANS – Baritone
MATTHEW GRILLS – Tenor
MARGARET MEZZACAPPA – Mezzo-Soprano
ANDREY NEMZER – Countertenor
Although I was only able to personally attend the first half of the program, I was won over by the sweet voice of Ms Brugger and the dramatic nature of Mr. Nemzer's countertenor and acting skills. Very exciting to watch them perform, and I can imagine what it must be like to sing in front of a reasonably full house at the Met and with an orchestra. Breathtaking and I applaud and admire all the singers for their dedication to their craft. Congratulations to all.
