Laura performed some of her favorite arias

Review:
"We first met and heard soprano Laura Loge who sang several numbers from opera roles in which she has performed. Her lovely voice and range was astounding. There were times I thought the roof of the church might take to the sky! Laura is a beautiful lady with an outstanding vocal range. She certainly brought the opera to Superior."
-The Clark Fork Chronicle
