If you haven't heard or seen her yet, this CD is a delightful way to know America's up and coming coloratura mezzo-soprano.

"An Evening of Arias and Songs" by Gioacchino Rossini, Vivica's first solo album (released June 1999) is a live recording of her March 28, 1999 recital at Pittsburgh's Carnegie Music Hall.

Her accompanist is Canadian pianist Martin Dubé shown here with Vivica, following a similar recital held at the San Diego Opera in October 1997 (see video excerpt)

Also just released as a 2-cd set is a live recording of Donizetti's Alahor in Granata in which Vivica sang, to great acclaim, the role of the Moorish prince Hassem. (Click HERE to go to discography page.) Her most recent performances were at the Caramoor Festival in Katonah, New York - a recital on June 20 and Rossini's La Gazza ladra on July 17. Of the latter, the NY Times wrote: "Her singing was thoroughly confident, done through a broad smile that left its mark on her vocal color, and accomplished in every way, but perhaps especially in the ardor of her low register."

1999 was a banner year for Vivica. The 1999 Dresden Music Festival's Artist of the Year, she was also named one of the 50 top cultural power brokers in Pittsburgh by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
