Day 183: My Friend the Opera Singer

Okay, how many of you can say you have a friend that sings Opera? I bet none of you! Can you believe I have a high school gal pal who has been a professional opera singer for more than 20 years!

Diana Tash and I attended junior high and high school together. Last year was our 30th High School reunion and many of the gals from the old gang began reconnecting in advance of the summer reunion. That has led to a rekindling of so many lovely friendships. Since then we have all gotten together every few months to stay connected. I have Blogged about these gatherings and my girlfriends several times.

Today Diana was performing locally so I attended to support her and to hear her beautiful voice. It was such a treat to listen to her sing and to watch her perform. She is just enchanting as an artist and a joy to support. My Dad loves opera so I took him with me to the performance. He has not seen Diana for 30 years and thought she was a marvelous singer. She was so kind to have sent him her CDs and when he heard her sing he thought she had a magial voice and wanted to see her perform live. Diana's mom attended today's performance too and I hadn't seen her for 30 years! It was a big love fest seeing the parents and the parents seeing us "kids" who are now grown women. A really touching afternoon.

It's so fascinating the careers we choose and the journey we take that leads us to our passions work-wise. I am so proud of Diana's accomplishments and her talent. I think it's really cool that I can say I have a friend who sings opera!
