ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes


Melanie is a classically trained soprano based out of New York City. She was most recently seen touring the country with a revue musical called "Hooray for Hollywood!" She was delighted to recently make her European debut in a concert tour throughout Poland. This concert highlighted the works of contemporary and traditional musical theater, and she was accompanied by a full symphony orchestra. Other recent highlights include her Carnegie Hall debut with the New York Choral Society.

Music has always been the breath of life for Melanie. From a very young age, everyone around her noticed that she had a special gift, and so she began to cultivate it at the tender age of 8. She started with piano lessons, and naturally excelled in music. She had a knack for all sides of music and entertaining. "I remember singing along to my tape recorder and imagining that I was on a stage. My parents would tell me to go to sleep, but I just couldn't turn the music off" At the age of 10, she auditioned for an exclusive group called Marywood College Children's Choir. Coming from a one-horse town, she was up against all the "city" girls of Scranton, PA. She sang her first solo with this group, and from that moment on, she knew she belonged on the stage.

Fast forwarding several years, it was obvious to all that Melanie was going to have a promising future in music. In high school, she competed statewide at PMEA music festivals and was awarded first place soprano in the entire state -- the biggest achievement she'd made up to that point. Soon after, she was admitted into her top choice school, Carnegie Mellon University. While studying at CMU, Melanie managed to sing her way to the top. "I felt like a big fish in a huge ocean, so I knew I had to work my hardest." She performed in many concerts, but a few of the highlights included the role of "Val" in A Chorus Line, "Nancy" in Benjamin Britten's Albert Herring, "Second Lady" in scenes from The Magic Flute, soloist in Bach's Magnificat, and featured ensemble in Candide.

After graduating with the highest honors, Melanie spent the summer studying opera in Italy. This experience had a great influence on her. "I absolutely fell in love with everything about Italy. The music, the culture, the beautiful terrain, the sun, the food, the people, and of course the wine." she said with a laugh. "I wanted to stay there and sing forever." After spending the rest of the year on a national tour of "Swing! The Musical" she returned to Italy to spend another summer studying. This wonderful experience led her to make her operatic debut as the prize role of "Nannetta" in Falstaff.

Ironically, after making the big move to New York City she had a series of jobs that took her right back out of the city. One being lead singer on a luxury cruise line, where she was able to develop her own one-woman cabaret. While on board, she even had the pleasure to sing back up for Florence Henderson. Traveling the world while singing was an incredible and life-changing experience for Melanie.

Melanie recently made her European debut throughout Poland performing concerts under the direction of Wojtek Mrozek. She is delighted to be returning to Poland for many encore performances this year. The music for this album, Broadway After Midnight was arranged by Wojtek and he assembled a band of great musicians from Poland. His musical stylings and arrangements can make you feel like you've been transported back to a 1920s Supper Club, lavish and smoky. Melanie and Wojtek plan to collaborate again in 2013 for another European concert tour and album.
