Elizabeth Parcells

Recently, my teacher/coach/friend/colleague, Harold Evans, suggested that I look up the soprano Elizabeth Parcells, and I am very glad he did. Ms. Parcells was an American singer who made her career primarily in Europe, suffering an early death from cancer in 2005 at the age of 54. I have a faint memory of having heard about her before, and I feel a strong kinship with her–as though I knew her, although I don’t think we met.

Visit elizabethparcells.com and explore this extensive website, containing a massive library of audio and video downloads. I have heard only a few excerpts so far, but much of it I like a lot.

What I have also found to be of great value is a transcribed interview with her, a “Discussion About Singing.” I highly recommend that all my students take the time to read this lengthy article, as it contains much truth.

More to come.
