I’m very excited to announce that Maria Damore will be singing on Traffic Opera. Maria is one of the most versatile singers in Berks County. She has a fabulous voice and was one of the actors in Reading Theater Project’s 2016 Da Ponte opera about the life and times of Lorenzo Da Ponte, the librettist for Mozart’s best operas. She’s done so much more, though. Here’s some lines from her bio:
“Maria Damore is a professional vocalist noted for her strong, clear vocals, and versatility in covering musical styles such as pop, jazz, soft rock, 50s-60s-70s music, standards, Broadway show music, classical, and Greek folk music.”
Amen to all of that. One of my favorite performances of hers was when she and Zack Luchetti burst into a pop song acapella in the mostly empty bar of the Abe Lincoln one night after a performance of Da Ponte. I was transfixed, stunned, and proverbially amazed.
So glad we’ll be recording her voice for posterity.
