Singerreise is now on Twitter!

For an upcoming campaign, I'm officially launching Singerreise on Twitter! Follow along at Twitter.com/Singerreise, or with the username @Singerreise.

But if you're a facebook user, that's still my go-to platform. So make sure to like us at facebook.com/singerreise as well! It'll help you keep up-to-date with what's happening, and you can post, comment and share about Singerreise.

And if you're in it for the videos, subscribe to the YouTube Channel. That means you get emails whenever I release a new video. It also helps Singerreise to show up more often on the YouTube homepage and in searches. More visibility would really help here!

And of course, Patreon.com/singerreise. Did you miss Episode 30? 'Cause that's where I talk about how Patreon is the most important of all these outlets.

Mozart double bill !

A quick update:

This is a busy weekend in the Silvia household!

Linda also happens to be the wife of Seattle Opera's General Director, Aidan Lang. We talk about her experience as a singer and as a director, about family life, and about Don Giovanni itself.

Book Review: The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg (029)

I have Singerreise book review for you! This time, I went back to reread Charles Duhigg's "The Power of Habit." This book has done a lot to reshape how I think about, well, a lot of things. It's a great book that empowers, even demands that you become a better person.

Winterreise, No. 12 - Einsamkeit (027)

Here it is! The halfway point for Winterreise. This is number 12 of the 24 songs in the Winterreise cycle. It also is a bit of an ending piece. The cycle was composed in two volumes, Part One and Part Two, with each of them having 12 songs in them. This piece, Einsamkeit, was the ending of the first part.
