My 15j-th entry – bijdrage
My first entry: 28-08-2014 : 15-G

Hi Everybody, a very good- morning / -afternoon / -evening!

Today I want to introduce to you a wonderful lady!! Her name is Caroline Kaart.
Although she was born in Blackness (Schotland) on 21 december 1931, she moved to The Netherlands in the 1950-s after marying a Dutch tenor / theatre-actor. I was fortunate enough to have a wealthy uncle and aunt in my childhood and they took me to the operahouse on many occassions. I cherish so many wonderful lovely moments with them at my side at a performance of Caroline.
She became famous, not only as an operasinger but also as a teacher, vocalcoach etc. In 1982 she has been given a nighthood by our royal family. She is still occupyin herself with giving singing lessons.
I have choosen a duet with a Dutch singer called Gerard Joling…I hope you enjoy it!

 

To add something extra… I also place here below a recording of a song sang by her husband, who passed away after a failed surgery in 1963, just a few years after they got married and Caroline moved to The Netherlands. His name was Hans Kaart.

 

Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-day / – week!

  6. How fortunate you were to have an aunt and uncle who took you to the opera to see her in person. What a strong voice!
