        I am a 4th/5th Grade teacher and often have WFMT playing in the background during classtime. It is both relaxing and inspiring for the students as they work. How fortunate we are to have such a diverese, high quality radio station in our great city that provides people of ALL ages exposure to beautiful music. I am very proud to be a supporter of WFMT!

        It’s a joy to hear such a fresh-sounding, well-placed and well-supported voice as Mr. Calleja. It seems the vibrato is the focus of the tone and frequency is truly reminiscent of the best singers in opera’s past. The tone is ample and the enunciation very clear. To my ears. Mr. Calleja sings on many vowels like Bjoerling and the timbre is reminiscent in the middle and high sections; and on the passagio, I hear the vowels sounding like Pavarotti. I love to hear him in any role he undertakes; and my hope that he undertakes the spinto roles carefully and gradually. Lyric Opera of Chicago is to be commended for engaging Mr. Calleja in roles most condign to his current vocal estate. I heard him in a Metropolitan Opera broadcast; and envy those who can hear him in person.

        Es un disfrute escuchar una voz fresca, con brillo, poderosa, buena técnica, y un vibratello que humaniza la voz.
        Guardo la esperanza de poder verle cantar spinto en persona, dado que voy cumpliendo años.
        Soy su mas ferviente admiradora. Gracias.
