"Musicians, Critics, Audience: Who Knows Best?" is a lively time of discussion between all the participants at a performance: the performers, CVNC's writers, and the audience. Tonight's musicians will tell us about their experiences with reviews, CVNC's writers will join the discussion as they tell how they prepare before a performance and then write their critiques afterward. The audience is invited to ask questions and express their opinions on who really are the experts!

O Lord, whose mercies from Saul
Where ere you walk from Semele

Jacques Snyman, rugby player and fitness model, made a splash in 2011 when he posted videos on YouTube displaying his vocal talents and impressive torso. His goal was to raise awareness for anti-bullying campaigns like the It Gets Better Project (http://www.itgetsbetter.org/).
Snyman came to formal vocal training late, in his 30s. Just a few years later, he is now attracting at least as much attention for his singing as for his appearance. Snyman's recent performing work with noted Italian conductors of early music Carlo Ipata and Leonardo di Lisi gained him new Italian performance opportunities for 2014-2015. Most exciting is a production of Tuscan composer Francesco Gasparini's opera Il Bajazet in Barga, Italy.
Join the writers and editors of Classical Voice of North Carolina during the program for a short discussion of "Musicians, Critics, or Audience: Who Knows Best?
