NEOC Presentation
December 15, 2019


Régine Crespin

John B. Jarzavek, Speaker

Régine Crespin

 

John Jarzavek will talk about Crespin’s career, which started with the singing competition she won after failing at her attempt at a different career: According to Wikipedia, she originally planned on becoming a pharmacist.

John will show videos of her in a number of the dramatic and spinto soprano roles in which she excelled, as well as selections from her song repertory.

He will talk about seeing her live in Paris in 1961 and in subsequent performances.   

This should be a very dramatic program!
