About to test his vocal cords at the Ponte Vecchio in Florence.

About to project his vocal cords towards the Ponte Vecchio in Florence.

It is clear Micah loves music, especially singing. (And drums — but if we had them here, our neighbors would break down our doors.) Given how much music there is in Italy, and particularly in Perugia, perhaps it is not surprising that Micah is developing some operatic tendencies.

So recently he sat us down for a concert of his own construction, accompanied by Simon on the piano (Schumann’s Knecht Ruprecht, Op. 68, No. 12, and Mozart’s Rondo Alla Turca, from Sonata in A, K. 331).

If Micah’s friends and grandparents would enjoy a five-year-old’s five-minute opera, entitled “Yes, yes yes (if I gotta be so hungry)” here it is…(the flourish comes around 4:25).
