Friday night's concert by mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe and pianist Warren Jones at Carnegie Hall was a delight. It's hard not to love Ms Blythe as a performer. Her ever solid vocal technique, her beautiful sound, and her commanding stage presence make her someone to see and hear live at any opportunity. From the moment Ms Blythe walked on stage, she had the crowd in the palm of her hand and never let them go. She wished everyone could receive such a warm welcome as she'd just received, and continued to charm the audience with introductions to each set. These included readings by Ms Blythe and Mr Jones of song lyrics – they preferred introducing each set to having lyrics in the printed program.
