This past April, for example, I was in my first main stage opera, The Magic Flute, in which I sang the role of Papagena! You can watch the opera here: http://music.indiana.edu/iumusiclive/streaming/
***If you want to watch my performance, make sure you select the recording of April 18th!***
(though the April 11th performance is also wonderful and I highly recommend it)
Of course, I also released my second full length album: Fool's Gold, which was a huge amount of work and a massive achievement for me and for all the other people who offered their talents to the project! You can download or order a hard copy here: https://gloriabangiola.bandcamp.com/
I also taught in Italy and in Indiana, made some of the best friends I've had in my entire life, learned about poetry, and how to sing bad karaoke, wrote an honors thesis, and failed to keep my room clean (yet again). The past 12 months have been some of the best of my entire life. I hope the next 12 are equally exciting and meaningful. I am so grateful to everyone I have known over the past four years and to Indiana University for giving me a home and room to grow. Here's to the end of one great adventure, and to the start of another!
