My First Opera: Terence Blanchard
Music was a major part of my life as a young person. I went to church every Sunday, and my dad sang in the choir. My parents loved classical music, and my dad would come home at night and put on his recordings and just sit down and listen to great opera. When operas would come on PBS, he would make me sit down and watch them. He loved all the classics, like Carmen. My favorite was La bohème.
