MacWatters, Virginia, 1912-2005
Soprano Virginia MacWatters was known not only for her impressive operatic career during which she performed in opera houses throughout the United States, Europe, and South America, but also for her dedication to teaching. In 1957 she joined the voice faculty of the Indiana University School of Music where she remained until her retirement in 1982.  “Una Voce Poco Fa” is composed by Gioachino Rossini, an Italian composer, for the opera The Barber of Seville in 1816.  The title translates as “A voice a little while ago” and is a highly popular piece in the comedic operas. Virginia performed as Rosina in 1949. “I Love You So” is piece from the Merry Widow, a German operetta composed by Franz Lehar.
