“As a classical guitarist, I had the rare opportunity of becoming an intern for an opera company. In Salt Marsh Opera’s production of The Barber of Seville, the main character, Figaro, played the guitar and accompanied himself in song. This is one of the few opera scores that calls for classical guitar. I had the pleasure of sitting in the orchestra and playing the guitar while the vocalist pretended to fingerpick his prop guitar. When attending rehearsals, I always stayed later than required so I could hear and be surrounded by the beautiful music and view the amazing stagecraft. I had never experienced an opera production before and I loved it. After the internship, I went on to study classical guitar at The Hartt School in West Hartford, Connecticut. The intern scholarship that was awarded to me was used for master classes at The Hartt School Guitar Festival where I performed and was given instruction by some of the best classical guitarists in the world. My experience with Salt Marsh Opera is something I will never forget; it exposed me to the wonderful world of opera and aided me in funding for furthering my musical education.”
