Opera Lounge at the Starlite Room 2017

A big THANK YOU to those of you who came out to support the arts on Friday, February 10th, 2017.  What a fabulous audience you were.  It was truly a blessing to see so many familiar faces and meet new ones. It was incredible to feel the music come alive and to share my hard work with such appreciative and responsive audience.  

I hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as I did.  I cannot wait to come back down to sing for you again.  

A word from Clayton:
Performing for the community of Sarasota was such a delight.  I was overwhelmed with love and kindness from all of Erica’s family and friends during my stay.  Thank you for bringing the masses to see Erica and I perform.  We are looking forward to performing at The Starlite Room again soon — perhaps mid July.  I will be performing The Baker in Into The Woods with St Petersburg Opera in late June and early July.  It would be lovely to see you all there.  Thank you again, and I look forward to performing in Sarasota with Erica again soon. 

And a few words from the both of us:

As artists we are constantly reminded that being in the arts only works when there’s a strong inclusiveness.  An inclusiveness of everyone from all walks of life, faith, race and gender — so that we may pull together to communicate the human experience.  It takes a village to get things done, no one can do it alone.  We want to thank you for being here today and being part in our journey.  Without the support of our our audience, none of this would be possible.  So thank you for your support and we hope you enjoy the rest of our show.

As always, if you are interested in donating or sponsoring private lessons, coachings, audition expenses, and anything else we singers need to get by; there a direct donation link in my website. 

Love to you all,

Erica and Clayton
