Green Tree Video
Agne G Soprano voice for 'Green Tree' video
'Green Tree' is a haunted fairy tale art song by Ellen Boscov.
Ellen Boscov – Composer and Writer
Ellen wrote: 'I heard Agne G singing on YouTube. The tone of her voice was angelic and unpretentious – I thought, “That’s the sound I want for the Soprano who sings Green Tree. I need to find someone nearby who has a similar voice.” I held local auditions. There were some really amazing voices. But none of them had Agne’s young angel sound. I wanted Agne to sing Green Tree.'
