Bass Kevin Langan set a remarkable record in 2010: he became the first singer to achieve 300 performances with the San Francisco Opera. A milestone like that doesn’t happen overnight, but after a nearly four-decade career—something Langan says was made possible by an ironclad technique given him by a great teacher and honed over years of diligent and daily practice.
