As Shaw Conducts
acquitted himself nobly in the
high and difficult solo part of the "Sanctus,"
sung against the exquisite background of
women's voices. Hagan sang from somewhere
in the rear of the top balcony, which lent a
special celestial quality to the floating tones
of his smooth pellucid singing.
John Schneider The Atlanta Journal
|Sam Hagan was clearly the au-
dience favorite. His poignant pre-
sentation of the Carmen: Flower
Song was beautiful, dramatic and
secure. This was complemented
with the later rendition of It Ain't
Necessarily So, full of formidable
technique and sheer showmanship.
Kitty Lamb The Augusta Chronicle
Hagan followed Miss
Holliday and did a breath-
taking performance of "M'Appari Tutt' Amor"
from the opera "Martha." The audience may have
been breathless, but Mr. Hagan surely was not as he
phrased so beautifullyrevealing his mastery of
breath control and articulation.
