"Long before the three-minute pop song arose, there was the classic art song a short segment of poetry sung to piano accompaniment. (Imagine Brahms and Debussy as Bieber predecessors.) Bringing back the art song, One Ounce Opera presents brand new pieces from emerging composers.take in the soaring vocals and unique creations." TRIBEZA, Nov 2016
