Dr. Jean-Ronald Lafond--Singing, teaching, and the world of opera
Play • 1 hr 29 min

Dr. Jean-Ronald Lafond is a classically trained singer who has sung, and taught in Europe, parts of Asia, and the North American Continent. He speaks about his childhood in Haiti, moving to New Jersey, and how his first experience at the Metropolitan  Opera inspired him to pursue singing instead of Engineering. He also discusses training singers, and his own philosophy marrying principles of Martial Arts with vocal training he calls Kashu-do. Lastly, he discusses the state of the opera world today—the effects of Covid, opera in the MeToo era, and racial reckoning in the industry.
