A SINGERS DIARY By Tracy Turner
......Mezzo-soprano Valeria Girardi has return performances with LaSelva slated for next season. Her earlier performances with NYGO proved to be a real turning point. "The exposure I got [from NYGO] was the key," Girardi recalls. "I got my agent from one of those park gigs! I don't think the agents specifically come to these, but I did a lot of mailings to let them know when I had performances. But the [agents] that `bit' had heard of me through recommendations - people I sang with at NYGO. Someone really liked what I was doing and mentioned me to their management. The break came from the people already in the business, people I got to work with." OPERA NEWS, July 2003.
Miss Girardi is pleased to announce her transition from Mezzo-Soprano to Soprano
