For more than 20 years Classical Singer magazine has been an invaluable resource for singers.  Monthly articles feature current and former opera stars who share their secrets of success, as well as their stories of struggle and inspiration.   Classical Singer magazine began in 1988 as The New York Opera Newsletter. For years it provided in-depth insights about the New York opera scene to its subscribers. But interest in the newsletter grew rapidly and the demand for more information by opera and classical singers from around the world stimulated a transformation.   Get a free trial of Classical Singer magazine at .www.classicalsinger.com/freesub.php.
