Lauren Michelle (USA), Round 2, 2015

Soprano Lauren Michelle sings Ain’t it a pretty night from Susannah by Carlisle Floyd in round 2 of BBC Cardiff Singer of the World 2015.

About the music: On a summer night in New Hope Valley, Tennessee, there has been a square dance at which the prettiest girl in town, 18-year-old Susannah Polk, has been the centre of attention. At home later that night, she sings of the beautiful evening and wonders what lies beyond the mountains that surround the town.
