Music I am #5 – Johnathan McCullough, baritone

Los Angeles Opera and Opera Pacific Opera camps are what affirmed my decision to go into the arts in college. Performing Oppenheimer in Doctor Atomic is what confirmed it for me that this was the career I wanted to go after.

I think organizational skills and good communication are essential.

Mental Health in the veteran community
4b.     Who’s on it:
Myself, Corrado Rovaris, Philadelphia Opera Orchestra members, Elizabeth Braden, and Grant Loehnig
5.     How do you discover new music?
Talking to people like you!

Brian Petuch! His opera Portrait and Dream is stunning!
