Elly Kace, Nothing I see means anything Review
Elly Kace is an award-winning opera singer that follows her musical muse through an endless universe of ceaseless curiosity and passion for sharing and creating music. An established and acclaimed opera singer, her career has found her performing across the world. Her music career began early; she joined the prestigious Chicago Children’s Choir at six years old. This soon led to a whirlwind musical education, summers traveling the world performing, a firm foundation in social justice causes, and even sharing the stage with artists like Bobby McFerrin, Celine Dion, and Renée Fleming. “From early on, I realized music is something that connects us beyond our bodies and circumstances,” says Kace. “You can be in the moment with any other human and share music.” It’s this ethos that propelled Kace’s decade-long journey in opera. “Opera can be so hard,” says Kace. “To do anything with it, you have to devote everything to it.” For Kace, this meant uprooting her life in Brooklyn and moving to Europe for a prestigious audition tour as an operatic soprano in early 2020. But when she was in Milan, Italy, the COVID-19 pandemic hit. She first fled to Florence and then back to her New York City home. “At the time, I was feeling excited about the prospect of a European career, and then to experience such a world-changing, death-filled thing instead was really difficult,” says Kace. “It was a painful lesson that there is never any control, ever.” Back in her Brooklyn apartment, the paradigm-shifting upheaval though difficult, gave Kace the time to recenter herself. A certified JM Vinyasa yoga instructor, Kace began obsessing over her daily Sanskrit meditations as well as two phrases from the influential book A Course in Miracles: “Nothing I see means anything” and “Bless them all.” These phrases would serve as her North Star for writing a new album titled Nothing I see means anything.
