Yellow Couch Sessions @ Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival
Pittsburgh Opera: Quando me'n vo (from La boheme)

I'm fairly certain that during the Renaissance, the people of Florence, Italy routinely performed operas in construction trailers. We're honored to keep this rich tradition alive and seriously thrilled that we had the chance to work with Pittsburgh Opera Resident, Claudia Rosenthal and Pittsburgh Opera Associate Coach/Pianist James Lesniak. The whole song is wildly impressive and its ending is truly one of the most amazing things I've heard a person do with their voice.
I used Peluso's P-87 on Claudia's vocals. She sang off axis from about a foot back. I used their tube-ribbon TR-14 on the keyboard's integrated speaker (placed a bit too close to the music stand).
All audio for Yellow Couch Sessions is recorded and mixed by Steven Foxbury of Yellow Couch Studio. Video for this session was shot and edited by Matt Dayak.
