At the end of Cano&rsquo;s sophomore year, Gaspar suggested that she should pursue a career as a singer. Cano had already been in her first opera scene at Webster and had enjoyed it. &nbsp;&ldquo;So I changed my major,&rdquo; said Cano, &ldquo;and started really focusing my energy on practicing and learning more of the craft of what singers need to know to be successful.&rdquo;</p> Sat, 28 Sep 2013 02:17:51 +0000 Mary Edwards 30239 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Jennifer Johnson Cano Returns Home To Preview Carnegie Recital
