    Creating the Virtuoso Obbligato Aria Collection
     The Virtuoso Obbligato Aria Collection is a collection of original arias from             opera, oratorio, and musical theatre for voice, cello, and keyboard. The song           /aria editions, in a performance ready format, had not previously appeared in
      any cello 
anthology in the original format when they were created. They were
      not readily available for purchase, yet appear on cello audition lists, are
      generally not taught in the studio, 
are performed in oratorio, opera, and recital,
      and eventually are encountered through the course of one's career. V
oice &             cello teachers,  vocal coaches, choral & opera directors, chamber music
                                                                                coaches, & librarians have expressed 
how
invaluable  the collection is as a
                                                                                research, teaching, & performance guide, plus a huge time saver.

Singers and cellists use the collection to learn these works thoroughly, eliminating last minute anxiety before auditions, solo appearances, recitals, galas, and fund raising events. The solo voice & cello parts are original settings with orchestral accompaniment transcribed in the keyboard part. Each work provides repertoire with audience appeal and satisfies an artist's  role as soloist and chamber musician. The cello obbligato part is a cellist's showpiece, not merely a continuo line providing only rhythmic and harmonic support for the voice. Our aria and cello music editions are sold and enthusiastically received and performed nationally and internationally.
