Last night the Aida missed her entry, so a violinist stood up and sangmain
At the Marina Del Rey Symphony’s performance of Aida last night, the soprano went missing at a crucial entry. The conductor, Frank Fetta, yelled for someone to sing the part. Up stood Jennifer Lindsay in the orchestra, put her violin down – and saved the show:
Jen describes herself, to be fair, a ‘baby opera singer, part-time violinist’. She’s joining Opera Southwest as an apprenctice artist.
Good to have one of those in the orchestra.

The performance was an open dress rehearsal for tonight’s show.
