Karita Mattila was a soprano in crisis. Surgery seemed to fix the problem but many thought her career would end. And then she emerged with a new voice and is back and better than ever.
The winner of this week's encore contest was Warnell N. of Wilmington, DE. The encore was Peer Gynt, Suite No. 1 by E. Grieg.
