NEWS FROM

THE FESTIVAL



PERSON 2 PERSON: MICHAEL BALLAM |

Leslie Tillotson, KUTV
Published: Friday, October 17, 2014
 

 

 
(KUTV) Michael Ballam has performed among the best in opera and on some of the biggest stages in the world. Along with being a performer himself he is also the founder and general director of the Utah Festival Opera and for over twenty years has been a professor of music at Utah State University. As a child, Michael knew it was his dream to sing opera before he had even seen one in person. This week he sits down with Shauna Lake, Person 2 Person, and tells her how gaining the support of his father is when he knew he would finally make it in the opera world.
