Soprano Quotations

I really wanted to be an opera soprano.
Maureen O'Hara

The cello is a hero because of its register - its tenor voice. It is a masculine instrument, whereas the violin is feminine because of its soprano pitch. When the cello enters in the Dvorak Concerto, it is like a great orator.
Mstislav Rostropovich

My high-school a cappella teacher would embarrass me in front of the choir. 'Mavis, you're in the basement. Mavis, you're singing with the boys.' I said, 'Mr. Finch, my voice isn't soprano. I can't sing up there with the girls.' So I just got out of the choir.
Mavis Staples

Jerome Richardson

Nobody inspired me more than Julie Andrews, who is a classically trained soprano herself.
Lesley Garrett
