Episode 65 -Chinwe “Chichi” Enu
Fri. Nov 27, 11 am ET
Soprano and Nigerian native Chinwe “Chichi” Enu’s path to a music career can only be described as unusual. After attending Georgetown University Law Center and practicing law briefly, she decided to forgo a legal career to pursue her first love: singing. Since then, her performances have included concerts in Nigeria, Austria, and the United States. Her operatic roles include the Marquise de la Mancha in The Queen’s Lace Handkerchief, Geraldine in A Hand of Bridge, La Prima Cercatrice in Suor Angelica, and The Duchess of Plaza-toro in The Gondoliers. Chichi’s mission is to connect with wide-ranging and increasingly diverse audiences and help them discover the joys of classical music. To that end, she is a huge proponent of performing in non-traditional spaces. She performs regularly with Opera on Tap DC Metro, an opera company whose members perform classical music cabaret-style at bars. She has also performed at art shows, schools, and a retirement community. She has even performed outdoors, most notably at the Piazza San Marco in Florence, Italy. She completed a second bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance at the University of Maryland, where she was awarded the Charlotte Newcombe Scholarship.
