To be a Teacher …
On 31st of August, 2021 in Bulgaria the great opera star Sonya Yoncheva together with Maestro Placido Domingo performed an unforgettable concert. The event took place in Sofia, in front of the Alexander Nevsky Church. Over 6,000 spectators had the opportunity to enjoy the highest opera art.
I had the happy opportunity given to me personally by Sonya Yoncheva to be on the front line, and to experience some of the strongest emotions in my life. It is no secret that I am Sonya’s first vocal teacher. Together we took the first steps on her path as a singer.
Today Sonya Yoncheva is one of the best singers in the world of the opera. But she is an extremely noble person and never forgets her teachers. Sonia gave me an invaluable moment that stays in my heart forever by introducing me to Maestro Placido Domingo as “My Professoressa “.
No one can imagine the excitement I experienced when Maestro Domingo said that our vocal work with Sonia was perfectly done. This is a moment that happens once in a lifetime and stays in the heart forever.
