Bella on Stage


Bella warming up . . .


to sing her first solo recital on a university stage. Seven pieces of classical soprano literature in English and Italian.

(Dress is Boden. It's not every day you make your debut).

Lovely! I only wish this post had a video with it so we could hear her beautiful voice again! :)

The color of that dress is perfect for her.

Bella has a bright future with you and your husband to guide her!

Oh, Anna! She is stunning! What a gorgeous dress on her--she looks absolutely lovely. I'm sure her performance was equally beautiful.

How are all your children so talented?

That dress is gorgeous. I was happier assuming you had made it. Now that I see I could buy it too I only wish I had an occasion that called for it! It wouldn't look as good on me as it does on her, though.

Congratulations Miss Bella! You look beautiful in your dress. I like the where the pearls lie against her collarbone, very elegant, very grown-up.

Isn't she lovely? She certainly is. I hope it went well! Perfect dress choice, just perfect.

Lilian said...

What an accomplished young lady she is. Would've loved to hear her sing - she has the voice of an angel.

Isla said...

She looks so beautiful. If only we could hear her, as well.

Rebecca said...

That dress is such a gorgeous rich colour, almost like the colour of the camellias in my back garden. Bella looks beautiful.

Beautiful girl! You must be very proud!

Joanna said...

I would be really interested to know what she sang - she's a soprano right?

Do you think she'll be a coloratura or a lyric or dramatic soprano?

JMS said...

She looks sensational. I wish I could have heard her sing. Any chance you could record it for next time.

First-time commenter! I've enjoyed your blog very much. Congratulations to your daughter, a college debut is very exciting. I'm about to finish up a voice undergrad, and am now heading off to do a Masters. Best of luck to Bella! (what pieces were performed?)

Bella has such poise and grace about her. On top of that, she is lovely and the dress is stunning on her! I wish I could have seen her performance. You done good, Mama! The Lord has truly blessed!

Nelle said...

Beautiful.

Lisa said...

Wonderful!
Yes, what did she sing? Was it baroque music? A range of different eras?

She looks beautiful! I, to, would love to know what she sang (fellow singer here!)

Wow. So beautiful. I'm echoing everyone else here, I would love to hear her again! She always gives me chills. In a good way! ;)

Jen said...

She is lovely-and so is that dress! And thanks for posting where you got it. Our daughter is getting married in august and I am looking for a dress. I just ordered 3 from Boden! Hopefully one of them will work.

Congrats to Bella! I've sung classical pieces in English and Italian myself. It's not easy!

She is just lovely!

Emily G. said...

She's beautiful, and I am sure her singing was too. You must be so proud.

Anna said...

Let's see, she sang two pieces by Handel, Bel Piacere and Lascia chi-io pianga, Ame's O Peace, Thou Fairest Child of Heaven (my favorite!), a Norwegian folk piece by Grieg, and several modern songs. If the Composer puts a little video together for me, I'll post it soon. Thanks for all the love for Bella!

Congratulations to Bella! It must have been quite an occasion (and probably involved a lot of nerves, too - it certainly would for me).

Adie said...

Bravo Bella! Such a lovely young woman.

Jenn said...

She looks lovely and so at ease... no jitters?

Caroline said...

Absolutely stunning!

I wish we could hear those pipes. :)

Rosie said...

That is so wonderful~way to go Bella!
And she looks lovely too :)

Bravo, Bella!!!
So proud of your accomplishment, and you look so beautiful in the Boden dress and pearls.
I hope you had a wonderful and memorable experience.
