We closed the year with a show to remember!
1. THE SCIENCE OF SWEARING
2. THE PRACTICE OF BEING COMFORTABLE WITH THE UNCOMFORTABLE
Every one of us is uncomfortable with something. What if you addressed what makes you uncomfortable, head on? On a consistent basis? This was a story of what happened.
San Diegan born and raised, Beck Bamberger graduated from UCLA in two years, then became the University of Pittsburgh’s youngest MBA graduate at 21. Beck started BAM Communications, a full service tech PR firm, while working as a TV host in San Diego. After winning an Emmy in 2011 for her TV work, she focused entirely on her entrepreneurial interests, growing BAM while starting Bite (San Diego’s top-rated and largest food tour company).
3. NO MICS: THE ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY OF OPERATIC SINGING
How do opera singers produce those incredible sounds? Why can’t pop singers keep up? Do you have to be rotund to be a great performer? As a year-end treat, two local opera singers explained and demonstrated their skills. Bravi!
Alvin Almazan is a tenor with San Diego Opera’s Opera Exposed young artist and education outreach program, and has also performed as a soloist and chorister.
