Notes & Reviews:

Soprano and composer Melanie Mitrano is the first woman to receive a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the New England Conservatory in Boston. She is a founding member of the Boston-based Auros Group for New Music, and she has sung with similar groups both here and in Europe. As she writes describing this recording: "I invite you on an American expedition of diverse influences...the songs on this disc are not merely classical, but a hybrid mixture of styles which includes jazz, blues, musical theater, popular music, rock, hip-hop, electronic and world music...Here, all roads lead to one destination-wonderfully timeless vocal music."
