 When Jamie Barton last visited WABE, she was preparing for, as she called it, “The Olympics of Opera.” It's more formally known as the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World. Barton went on to win both the Song Prize and the entire competition. It's thrilling to win, but what happens next? 

Georgia native mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton will perform this Sunday afternoon at 3 at Spivey Hall
