I Was Part of the Verdi Cycle


Danielle Walker


Thank you Maestro Derenzi and Sarasota Opera for including me in such a fantastic project of “performing every note that Verdi wrote”! I feel fortunate to say that I not only made my professional debut with this company but also my Verdi debut. What a wonderful way to celebrate the life and works of one of the world’s greatest composers.


To me this project demonstrates how two men can truly inspire artists and audiences to continue to appreciate the power of good music to thrill us and touch our very souls whether it is well known or not. Thank God for Maestro Derenzi and his vision for Verdi’s works.
