Going Rogue: SSC Voice department flips
Want to hear a soprano sing Old Man River? How about a baritone sing a soprano piece from Carousel? SSC’s voice faculty sings songs not known to be sung by their voice type or genre. Maybe an opera singer will sing a pop tune! This performance is sure to be hilarious and touching.
