On Saturday evening, March 8, 2014, I opted to stay home in Long Beach, Ca. and enjoy the beautiful singing of Verdi's Requiem featuring soprano Angel Blue with the St. Louis Symphony. I first heard Angel when she sang on a luncheon program of African Americans for LA Opera as a 10th grader at LA County HS for the Arts and immediately recognized this evening and so many more great programs are ahead for Angel.

In the after concert interview from Powell Hall, Angel Blue shared her father was an opera singer. She frequently heard opera recording at home and decided to pursue opera at age 5.
