To hear Jessica Knott and Darrius Washington sing is to hear the voices of angels. And fortunately, these angelic sounds will carry themselves all the way to Italy this summer, thanks to an opportunity for Knott and Washington to perform in the 2010 Vocal Program at the Amalfi Coast Music & Arts Festival in Amalfi, Italy, July 14 – 26, which was funded, in part, by a generous donation from an anonymous Marygrove alumni donor.

They were selected to perform in a summer opera production of Mozart's “The Magic Flute” as well as additional solo performances in select opera scenes—an incredible honor, as there were an unexpectedly high number of applicants this year, making the normally complex audition review process even more selective than usual. Washington will perform the roles of Armored Man/Priest and Knott will perform the role of 2nd Spirit.
