"...soprano Angela De Venuto’s performance of “L’alba separa” from “Quattro Canzoni d’Amaranta” by the Italian composer F. Paolo Tosti was cathartic and moving. A seemingly complicated piece to sing, De Venuto delivered it with an ease that was both inviting to hear and riveting. She earned the night’s only shouts of “bravo” from the audience."
-Joshua Peacock (Do Savannah)
