At a performance of Handel's "Messiah" tonight at Boston's Symphony Hall, I got to meet singer/soprano Suzie LeBlanc. This was a big deal for me. In fact, I traveled an hour on the T to see the Messiah specifically just to hear Suzie sing. It was worth it.
I bought Suzie's Portrait album awhile back, which, at the ridiculously low price of $6, I absolutely insist you buy right now. Suzie's voice is so beautiful that it is one of the few voices in the world that actually provokes physical reactions within me when I listen; I feel my chest shrinking and my heart melting when her dulcet tones dance over the notes of an Aria. I've embedded a couple of her pieces below. Take a listen and let me know what you think, but please, buy her album to get the high-fidelity experience. You will not regret it.
