I hope you enjoy this wide-ranging conversation with Rochester Classical Idol winner Kathryn Lewek (taped in early August 2015) on a bunch of topics: playing a desperate woman in Candide, working with opera director Francesca Zambello, why her teacher Robert McIver says she's "still a baby," and what she appreciates now about her time at the Eastman School of Music. ~ Brenda
